There are basic differences between the team approach and the committee approach. Participation on committees was a means of giving employees a voice and bringing people together to share ideas on a particular project or for a special purpose. The committee approach has been superseded by the concept of shared management and teams have been encouraged in order to work collaboratively using team problem-solving techniques. Teams tend to have more responsibility, more authority, and the team approach tends to be more proactive than the committee approach.
