As opposed to the project-based organizational structure, where a dedicated team carries out a single dedicated project, the team-based structure involves two or more teams working on the same project—or, in other cases, it's a single team handling multiple projects.
This approach fully displays the flexibility of a team that can switch between projects and apply their skills in a broader way. Moreover, if one team runs multiple projects for the same client, they get deeper insights into the subject matter of the client's business-the precious knowledge that yields more focused decisions.
- Multiple teams must be kept in sync, which drastically increases the complexity of management
- Unstandardized workflow prevents teams from staying on the same page
- Absence of version control increases the risk of error
- Unsynchronized collaboration between teams causes lower individual performance
- There is laborious manual work with tasks that could otherwise be automated
