Have you ever been on a committee, working party, board or work team where you have felt a degree of frustration and thought "this is a waste of time" or "I could do more on my own"? Take comfort in knowing you are not alone. However, teams or groups can build knowledge and skills of all involved to positively influence change for a long time to come. This can be a family team, an enterprise, a community, a region, organisation or whole of industry. All require a 'group effort' to achieve sustainable development and change.
