You could also create a .BAT file (assuming you're working under 
windows), where you execute your script using Rscript. You team will 
still need to install R.

What also might work when your team is working on one network: Install R 
on a network drive. In your .BAT file you can then set up the machine 
for R (e.g. add the R binary directory to your path and tell R  where to 
find the libraries). You will have to check the R Administration manual 
for the exact details. You will then only have to send your team the 
.BAT file and the R-script (which could also be on the network drive).
