Self-Directed Work Team (SDWT) - short version

(1) A type of team structure in which much of the decision making regarding how to handle the team's activities is controlled by the team members themselves.

(2) Through the natural evolution of the Lean work environment, associates begin to work more as interdependent teams in order to accomplish area and company goals. When this begins, it is time to support the transition to a self-directed workforce, capable of managing their own areas with greatly reduced supervision and oversight. Self-Directed Work Teams, to a large degree, voluntarily interact with internal customers and suppliers to improve area effectiveness and effectively deal with area issues.

(3) Work teams that have a considerable degree of autonomy.
