BuildingTeam building is a philosophy of job design in which employees are viewed as members
of interdependent teams instead of as individual workers. Team building refers to a wide
range of activities, presented to businesses, schools, sports teams, religious or nonprofit
organizations designed for improving team performance. Team building is pursued
via a variety of practices, and can range from simple bonding exercises to complex
simulations and multi-day team building retreats designed to develop a team (including
group assessment and group-dynamic games), usually falling somewhere in between.
The Generation Innovation programme has been designed to introduce Team building
exercises throughout the delivery of the modules.
