Forming[ edit ] The team meets and learns about the opportunities and challenges, and then agrees on goals and begins to tackle the tasks. Team members tend to behave quite independently. They may be motivated but are usually relatively uninformed of the issues and objectives of the team. Team members are usually on their best behavior but very focused on themselves.
Looking back on my experiences working with teams and running Chess Media Group with Connie, I definitely find the phases to hold true.
These teams phases can be applied across departments and organizations and towards initiatives such as Enterprise 2. This is how the phases break down: Forming This is the initial stage of putting the team together where individuals learn about each other and the team requirements as well as the challenges, expectations, and the organizational structure of the team.
This is also the information gathering and exploratory stage. If you have ever been put into a team or have been asked to form one then you are most definitely familiar with this phase and should be able to relate to it.
Storming This is probably the more tumultuous phase during which the members of the team all have their own ideas and directions that they want to go in.
Oftentimes team members debate, critique, and confront each other to decide on the best course of action. Usually companies go through serious problems when they cannot leave this phase thus making the entire relationship very tense and difficult for everyone.
Norming This is the phase where the team really starts to function and work together as a team. Individuals start to understand each others work habits and ethic and everything seems much more natural. Responsibility and roles are much more clearly defined, expectations are set, and collaboration is in full swing.
Supervision goes down as individuals are now capable of making appropriate decisions. This is essentially where your team really starts shining and delivering superior results. Adjourning and Transforming These are two additional phases that Bruce later added to his team development.
Adjourning refers to the team breaking up after the task has been completed. Transforming involves the team not breaking up but instead moving onto other tasks and objectives from what I understand. I found these stages of team development quite relevant.
As Bruce mentions, these stages can be cyclical once changes occur, such as the introduction of a new team member or the change of some other team variable that can modify how the team works.
I especially see these phases applicable towards Enterprise 2. What do you think about these stages and where are you within your team or organization?
