Describe the types of teams, using the criteria of purpose and activity, life span, and member involvement for each type?
Types of teams
The teams are mostly categorized as Traditional, Informal, Problem-solving, leadership, self-directed and Virtual teams. This categorization is based on purpose and activity of the team members. Such as for social purposes, the Informal team is working. The Traditional team is carrying the members of any organizational group from the functional area. Same is the case with other teams where purpose and activity is a priority. It is also useful to be said that the time span is usually longer among highly formal team organization as in a Traditional team. It is also to be said that team is meant to work on a collaborative level and it is carried specifically among members of the group.
