Author(s): Utku DEM?RC?

Are groups and teams the same thing? What turns a group into a team? What differentiates a team from a group? These are all critical questions and understanding of them is crucial to understanding of what makes an effective team. The main purpose of this study is to examine effectiveness of groups and teams on organizational performance within a business environment. Within this scope; definitions of groups and teams, similarities and differences between groups and teams, effectiveness of team performance and effectiveness of groups are investigated in order to clarify whether groups and teams are the same. This study reveals that the effectiveness of a group or a team is dependent on which market sector the organization is in and the organizational objectives. As a result, groups and teams are very much different. However they have the ability to produce the same outcome which is successful organizational performance.
