The authors are engaged in a three year EPSRC funded project into teamworking in manufacturing companies, investigating archetypical forms of teamworking rather than focusing upon narrow or discrete sets of issues. Initially the dynamic capabilities of teamworking are explored: 1) through a consideration of changes in the manufacturing environment from one of the legacy of “old” organisational forms and functions to contemporary environments where quality, flexibility and continuous improvement are key features in the drive to meet world-class quality and productivity levels; and 2) through a discussion of a detailed case history of one of the projects collaborators. Archetypical approaches to teamworking are identified and benefits of an organisational perspective explored. The implications of this for research design and investigation are than reviewed as in the eventual development of a strategic methodology for the effective introduction and development of teamworking into manufacturing companies
