Selecting the Team's Type
Departmental Team (Default)
These teams have the same functionality as the LT, but they cannot edit the organization's Core Values, Purpose/Passion/Just Cause, Compelling and Audacious Goals, or Go to Market Strategy.
They can create their own Vision to align team members around a shared vision, track long-term goals, and document long-term Issues.
Project teams have the same functionality as department teams, except they do not have a Vision. These teams are often formed for a specific interdepartmental purpose.
Private teams are often used for one-on-one feedback meetings between a team leader and their direct reports. Since they're private, only the members assigned to the team can view the content within.
Owners and Implementers still retain viewing privileges for private teams.
