Sime, Workenh Eshatuu


Team enables people to cooperate, enhance individual skills and provide constructive feedback without any conflict between individuals (Jones, et.al 2007).  This study conducted to explore the factors that affect the culture of team works in federal level ministry offices in Ethiopia and to suggest the mechanisms to overcome those challenges and utilize the good opportunities.  In the study the mixed methods of research design have been employed. The study used both primary and secondary data. The primary data has been collected by using questionnaire, focus group discussion and in-depth interview from the members of change army. Secondary data have been collected from different published and unpublished documents.  The sample sizes in the study were 322 respondents. The data has been analyzed through ordered probit model with the help of STATA software. The finding of the study showed that almost all identified individual, structural, institutional and managerial challenges, had statistically significant impact for breaking the culture of team work except for Lack of active participation in all three models, Absence of group thinking in second and third model and inappropriate group size, Lack of visionary change army leader, unfair duty and responsibility sharing, Political Interference and lack of decision making skills in third model. Since, more than ninety percent of identified variables had statistically significant impact in terms of breaking down the culture of teamwork in Ethiopia, government and all decision makers in the country should have to work to minimize these identified challenges.
