Stages of Team Development — Challenge Applications
Tuckman’s Group Stages, also known as Tuckman’s Team Development Model, is a theory proposed by psychologist Bruce Tuckman in 1965. He developed an easy-to-digest model that shows how teams in different areas go through similar stages of group development. Learning these four stages of group development will enable you to shape successful teams that perform to the best of their ability. Four stages of group development are common: – Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing.
Additionally, the time spent in each stage can vary widely depending on the team’s composition, objectives, and external factors. Effective team leadership and communication can help teams navigate these stages more smoothly and reach the performing stage more quickly. Happy Reading!
