|dc.description.abstract||This report gives a full analysis on strategies that are used to enhance teamwork in the
school of business at the University of Nairobi. The objectives of the study are to
determine the strategies used and to determine challenges encountered in enhancing
teamwork. Furthermore various scholars like Adair (1986) have looked at the definition
of a team which is just a group with a common aim. In this group, contributions of
individuals are seen as complementary. Collaboration, working together, is the keynote of
a team activity. Adair suggests that the test of a good team is whether its members can
work as a team while they are a part contributing to a sequence of activities rather than to
a common task, which requires their presence in one place and at one time. He also
emphasizes the importance of careful selection of a team member. Avery et, al. (2002)
looks at the strategies that are used by various organizations in enhancing teamwork at
their work place. The benefits and challenges of teamwork are also discussed.
On analysis of data, the findings indicated that teamwork is used in education institutions
with use of team building, commitment and promotion of vision and mission of the team.
Therefore University policies should be supportive towards teamwork due the benefits
that arise and increased production that can be derived.||en
