Programme Content/Outcomes
The use of the term “team” is often used interchangeably with 'group' but we do have an understanding of the very specific term “team”.
• Technically the difference very largely lies in the direction of action. A group is a collection of individuals with something in common.
• A team, on the other hand, is action orientated. It has a clear purpose and it is a purpose which is shared by its members.
• In a group, the individuals can all have their own objectives, actions and direction, but in a team, the individuals work together collectively to achieve a common goal.

This module focuses in on how to lead and motivate a team.


To enable a practising or potential leader/manager at ILM Level 3 to understand the need for teams to have a sense of vision and purpose that reflects the organisation’s, and the role that effective communication, motivation and individual and team development play in enabling this to happen.
