(teem-wirk) as defined on Dictionary.com is a noun described as "cooperative or coordinated effort on the part of a group of persons acting together as a team or in the interests of a common cause." Many well-known sports figures and giants of industry have been quoted on the importance of teamwork. From Michael Jordan to Henry Ford teamwork has played an important role in their success. Michael Jordan, basketball legend, says "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships." He should know. Even as perhaps the greatest basketball player of all time, he knew that without the teamwork consitsting of talented individuals, the six NBA championships the Chicago Bulls won during his career would not have happened.
Henry Ford once said, "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success." The car manufacturing icon, who installed the assembly line to build his Ford automobiles is a prime example of industrial teamwork. Every person on the line was a key element to the common goal. Each individual had a task to complete. On December 1, 1913 Ford installed the first moving assembly line for the mass produciton of an automobile. This new innovation reduced the time it took to build a new Ford from 12 hours, ot only 2-1/2 hours.
In all successful businesses teamwork is a key factor. Whether it is a professional basketball team, a car manufacturer, or a homebuilder, a talented, experienced team is necessary for success.
