    • How does teamwork work?
      It starts with a team.
      A team is “a set of people with a range of different skills who will ideally have objectives that contribute to the overall corporate strategy of business.”
      -”Using Teamwork to Build a Better Workplace” – case study by The Times 100 (Chartered Management Institute)
