The term team management has been borrowed from the sports terminology, where all members of a team, work together to achieve a common goal. All members of the team are of equal importance and work individually and cooperatively to finish assigned tasks. In this kind of team problems are shared, as well as successes. On the other hand failures are not blamed on an individual but are carefully analyzed to explain reasons for mistakes or failure. Successful managers nowadays have recognized the importance of team management, that's why they are increasingly turning their energies to team building to regain the competitive edge. When working in a group, the performance of the group members is enhanced to a great extent because they will get support from two sources, from the manager responsible for the work group and from other group members. As soon as the team is formed, the manager should focus the employees efforts and help to ensure their commitment through involvement, creativity and mutual support. Team involvement increases employees' satisfaction, acceptance of change, and facilitates creative problems solving. When a manager fulfills his role as leader, adviser, administrator and coach, subordinates become able to perform their job responsibilities effectively. Goals and expectations of the organizations should also be expressed clearly so that the employees behave in ways consistent with preferred behaviors. If a manager fails to bring together the right resources, equipment and people, then he cannot expect subordinates to perform at peak levels. As a result, managers who do not coach, encourage and advise are likely to limit the growth and development of their staff.
