Title: Dream Team
Teamwork has become more and more important in the past 200 years because of the growth of the societies and business organisations have created a context in which terms no longer work in isolation. The Dream Team refers to the outcome is greater and better then every team members can imagine, each member inspire others to bring out more different kinds of idea.

In this literature, it also talk about a really interesting area for me in teamwork which is team quality management. Group thinking is a key element for team quality. There are symptoms of quality management. Firstly, It will give out strong pressure to make a agreement of the view or idea in the majority of the group members.
