3. Tasks and Team Building

Task Accomplishment - Team Mission and Vision
The driving force behind every team is a clear mission and vision. A mission is the task at hand…what the team does…its purpose for existing. A vision is a mental image of a possible and desirable future state for the team that is better than what now exists. 

The best teams have members who share a common understanding of the mission and vision, and have great clarity of how their mission and vision support those of the larger organization. Teams that perform poorly are frequently found to lack this common understanding.
