1. Work Team: Work teams are work units responsible for producing goods or providing services.
Membership is usually on going and typically from the same function. Work cycles are continuous
and repetitive. Examples of this type of team include production lines, maintenance teams, distribution
teams and customer satisfaction teams.
2. Parallel Team: Parallel teams are cross-functional teams used for problem-solving and improvement
activities. Membership is on going and draws from different functions or departments whose work
processes overlap. These teams co-exist with the members' home department responsibilities. The
teams' objective is to analyze a process and make recommendations to management. Examples of
parallel teams include scrap reduction teams, inventory accuracy teams and vendor certification teams.
3. Project Team: Project teams are cross-function and used for problem solving. They differ from
parallel teams in that they are brought together with a specific goal and, once achieved, they disband
and return to their functional group. Examples of project teams include research and development,
design, implementation and task forces.
