- In this framework, the word “team” can be interpreted broadly, as any group of people with shared goals or objectives. An individual may be part of just one team, or contribute to different teams.
- To continually improve we need to work together more effectively, not just in our own teams but across the University. This cannot be achieved by everyone working towards their own personal agendas, rather we need shared goals and a positive attitude towards team-working.
- Being loyal and taking responsibility for our teams’ actions and development is a significant part of developing better working practices.
