Subject(s): Team performance; Personal contribution


Created in organizations to solve problems, provide services or create products, teams are seen as mechanisms that enable organizations to efficiently respond to customers demands. When studying team work one observes that at the same time that members are working to a common purpose and objective, each member fosters the achievement of these through their individual contributions. However, just as too much individuality creates problems, so does too much coesion. In this sense, the importance of achieving a balance, as well as an interrelation between individual contribution and collective work is crucial to enhance team performance.
