Hello V - and all!
A team that is skilled in team learning has a better chance of being
effective (and of being more effective than a team without these skills).
Many teams are effective (i.e., they achieve their goals) without
demonstrating team learning skills. But a team with team learning skills
has a better chance of being effective and achieving their goals faster
(because through better communication they discover their mistakes sooner)
than other high-performing teams.
I wrote a bit about how I view team learning on my consulting website -
