Abstract: There has been an increase in the use of teams across sectors and industries to improve performance and productivity. Team are usually formed to achieve an improved outcome that cannot be efficiently achieved by an aggregation of individuals’ efforts. The construction industry is largely collective in nature and frequently perceived as a “team” industry. It is therefore an ideal working environment for teams to be explored and implemented. The differences between teams and groups are highlighted to clarify their usage. The benefits of teams and performance related team types are discussed to reflect their composition and style of management. Teamwork is presented to emphasise the importance of collaborative working in teams. The paper is a review of how team types can be formed and used to improve performance of teams within the construction project management environment. The review leads to the formulation of the key research questions and a model liking team to project performance is proposed. The direction of future research is also highlighted within the paper.
