A group of people with a full set of complementary skills required to complete a task, job, or project. Team members (1) operate with a high degree of interdependence, (2) share authority and responsibility for self-management, (3) are accountable for the collective performance, and (4) work toward a common goal and shared reward(s). A team becomes more than just a collection of people when a strong sense of mutual commitment creates synergy, thus generating performance greater than the sum of the performances of its individual members.

This definition encompasses the key elements of "team." Other characteristics of systems engineering teams are a sense of shared commitment to achieving the end result, shared work products, and willingness to help one another. As pointed out in the definition, a team is more than a collection, or group of people. A systems engineering team is a group of individuals who cooperatively perform a collection of systems engineering tasks based on a shared vision and a common set of engineering objectives.
