What is a Self-Directed Team? Meaning.

A Self-Directed Team is a small group of employees who are empowered to manage themselves and the work they do on a day-to-day basis. The members of such a team are usually responsible for designing/defining, managing and carrying out a whole process, product or service.


Some people make a difference between Self-direction and Self-managing, in which a Self-Managed Team is a group of people working together in their own ways toward a common goal which is defined outside the team, and a Self-Directed Team is a group of people working together in their own ways toward a common goal which the team defines.
