Replying to LO13575 --

Len's research matches my experience. Teams are best in more complex
situations, individuals best in simpler situations. In fact, it is quite
clear that teams are counter-productive in situations that are
well-defined. In a product development environment, for example, where the
product is merely a refinement of an existing product, then a
cross-functional team does not add value to the process. On the other
hand, when the product is very new and different. then the
cross-functional team adds a great deal of value.
