A group of people working on a common project, where each has a role and assigned tasks, under the responsibility of a project manager, with the aim of producing a deliverable for which they are accountable and will be evaluated.
The project team has a predetermined duration. It disintegrates when the objectives have been achieved.
Work Team (WT)
A structured group of people where everyone has a role and defined tasks under the responsibility of a manager. The members are interdependent. The team has a clear planning and mandates. Each one is evaluated by the manager.
The work team has no fixed term until the next reorganization.
Community of practice (CoP)
A group of people who come together to share and learn from each other, face-to-face or virtually, about problems, experiences, models, tools and best practices. They interact on an ongoing basis.
The community is defined by its domain of activity, in relation to the professional practice of its members. Membership is generally voluntary.
It is not a work team or a project team. It is transversal to the company’s organization.
It is organized, unlike an informal network.
