This chapter reviews teamwork skills relevant to business and management students. It shows how effective teams work, so that students may seek to incorporate this knowledge in their future team experience in the university and later in their career. The chapter then looks at some the theory regarding teams, including people management or organizational behaviour. It also demonstrates how working in a team improves a student's subject knowledge and skills and develops their social and personal skills. Finally, the chapter addresses two particular aspects of teamwork that will be relevant to students both at university and later in their career: conflict resolution in teams, and cultural issues.
