Teams in the workplace -- Analysis, Communication in small groups, Teams in the workplace -- Case studies


Teams are typically formed to achieve goals that a single individual cannot. When teams are formed, they should come together and start working on the task at hand. By doing so, teams are confronted with predictable stages of team growth that are fairly well documented. Scholtes, et al. describes these four stages as forming, storming, norming, and performing[1]. These stages were used as a framework to outline the team’s process of becoming a performing team. Our team was able to successfully complete all assignments for the class, and although the final judgment on how well we did this will be received in the form of our grade, the Team feels as though we have met the deliverables with a high level of quality.
