Decision-making has a great influence on effective teamwork, because it involves some degree of participation. Firstly, team decision-making uses an overlapping form of structure. Individuals known as ‘linking-pins’ are members not only of their own team but also of the next superior team and, where appropriate, of peer teams. This enables each team to be linked to the rest of the organization which resulted in high efficiency and effectiveness of a particular team. On the other hand, decision-making relies heavily on group processes (scheduling), and discussions focus on the decisions to be made. With the team method of decision-making the superior is held responsible for the quality and implementation of decisions. The superior is also responsible for developing subordinates into an effective team (Handy, 1993).
