This review paper aims, first, to analyze the potential of team-based-organizations and their advantages for coping and adapting to flexible and uncertain environments. And secondly, to examine the effects that organizational dynamics may have on group processes and outcomes, with particular emphasis to phenomena such as team downsizing, membership changes, team learning processes, and other work terms arising from the requirements of flexibility. In addition, we also analyze the potential effects of these conditions on team performance and team effectiveness. Finally, we summarize the main practical implications for organizational design and team management in dynamic and complex environments characterized by high levels of uncertainty and flexibility.
