6 Good Reasons to Form a Team
To solve problems by drawing on the talents of variety of individuals. To foster togetherness in the workplace while tackling projects. To reduce or eliminate a lack of communication among staff members on projects. To heighten productivity by encouraging an atmosphere of cooperation. To achieve a solution that might be unpopular to some but is the desire of the majority. IIMCHL

7 Weak Reasons to Form a Team
To lighten the workload of the supervisor (this requires delegation.) To make workers transfer knowledge to one another to save educational costs (these people need training.) To determine the opinions and working styles of the staff (this organization need improved communication.) To get the staff to work harder (they need better supervision or motivation and rewards.)
