The manager should have good team skills. All the characteristics of the team must be present to achieve process gains. Steiner (1976) studied process losses, the experience that group output tends to be less than expected from the given resources. There are two sources of process losses, miscoordination and lack of motivation. Miscoordination is a serious issue in tasks requiring interdependence. The very diversity of the team members' skills and goals leads to a variety of miscoordination mechanisms (Kraut, 2003). Two sources of low motivation are the simple presence of group members (Osborne, 1963; Zajonc, 1965), and "social loafing". Miscoordination and lack of motivation can happen due to lack of the characteristics of the teamwork. Effective team work and work group is required to reduce the process losses and for effective of services.
