We all participate in teams in some aspect of our job or personal life. We all understand that the function of a team is to accomplish the results or achieve the goal that it sets out to achieve. It sounds simple, a little pre-planning, find the right people with the right skills, define the goal and let the rest take care of itself. Why then in sports, do we so often see that the best teams 'on paper' fail to achieve their goal of winning the championship? Why then in business, do we so often find teams that fail to achieve what they set out to do when they have the right people and resources?
