Differences Between Groups and Teams To distinguish between groups and teams, respective definitions are hereby noted. According to Martires and Fule (2004), a group is “a collection of people interacting with each other for fairly some time utilizing certain resources and methodologies to achieve common goals or interests” (p. 93). On the other hand, Clark (1997) defined a team as “a group of people coming together to collaborate. This collaboration is to reach a shared goal or task for which they hold themselves mutually accountable. A team is a group of people with a high degree of interdependence geared towards the achievement of a common goal or completion of a task rather than just a group for administrative convenience” (par. 3).
