A team is always a group, but a group is not always a team!
Teamwork includes sharing of important knowledge with others and the creation, support and enhancement of co-operation and collaboration. For the sake of group success, it is vital that each team member understands how to assign or accept responsibility, inspire other team members, manage conflict between self and/or other team members, enhance the strengths of the team, and hedge the weaknesses of the team.
