Team learning is a closed system in which the energies of individual members work at cross purposes to maximize the success of the team. The members on the team may work very hard, but the team's effort may not be efficient enough to complete a desired task. Each member shares at least one common purpose. The term was first purposed by Peter Senge, a senior lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Senge defines and elaborates the concepts of team learning in his famous business book, The Fifth Discipline.
