Design/methodology/approach – The paper considers ways by which benefit and gains might be achieved by greater voluntary input from the workforce, thereby achieving better cost‐cutting results. Findings – The main finding is the realisation of the latent value of natural teams if their involvement is encouraged and recognised. Originality/value – The latent value of natural teams exists and can be encouraged. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Industrial and Commercial Training Emerald Publishing
