Unit purpose and aim(s)

The business environment is becoming ever more global and as a consequence, the workplace is changing.  People are often required to work cross-functionally and with people at other locations. People may be required to work as part of different teams on a variety of projects. Business awareness, being responsive and having a ‘can do’ attitude are essential, as is a willingness to work collaboratively with different people. 

This unit introduces you to teamwork and the characteristics of effective teams. It will address team member skills and how to build effective working relationships within different types of teams and business structures, including virtual environments. As part of this, it will explore how teams need to be led, motivated, managed and monitored in order to be effective. As team working is not always easy, the unit also explores the difficulties that might be faced in different settings, and how to recognise and diffuse conflict.

As a consequence of completing the unit, you will evaluate your own skillset in relation to team work in order to optimise input into the teams you are part of, which will ultimately maximise your contribution to meeting business objectives. 

This unit is assessed by traditional timed exam - read more.
