In business management, an autonomous work group is a group encouraged to manage its own work and working practices. The concept of an autonomous work group was developed by Eric Trist at the Tavistock Institute in London, England after the end of World War II.[1] Involving the working team to decide for itself how the work should be carried out, and distributed among members.
