An organization is independently run body that has a specific purpose. It owns assets and involves people and other organizations through contracts to exchange particular goods and services for money.

As organizations grow the people who are part of the organization are organized into teams. Teams can exist for many purposes - for example, a team may be formed to deliver a project. Teams have their own structures that include team leaders and team members.

Often an organization has a hierarchy of teams called the departmental structure.
