Group: A collection of people who share certain interests or passions, or might simply enjoy each other’s company
Team: Have specific goals or purposes. Have a clear task and must collaborate with each other to complete the task.
Teams occur when a number of people have a common goal and recognize that their personal success is dependent on the success of others. They are all interdependent. In practice, this means that in most teams people will contribute individual skills many of which will be different. It also means that the full tensions and counter-balance of human behaviour will need to be demonstrated in the team.
