Managing Horizons makes a distinction between team training and team building. Team training is the learning of specific skills through the phases of team development – forming, storming, norming, performing, ending. Depending on the business strategies, it may also include the skills needed to evolve to a self-directed or self-managed team. Team building is targeted for intact teams – whatever their developmental phase. It helps them build/strengthen relationships and practice teamwork with a focus on applying learning for real-world results. Often, team training and team building are combined in interventions over time.
