Step 3:
What constitutes a good team?
5 Stages of
Team Development

Step 1:
Often very little is achieved in this stage.
This is often the stage where many teams fail.
Step 4:

Bruce W Tuckman is an educational psychologist who first described the (then) four stages of group development in 1965. Looking at the behavior of small groups in a variety of environments, he recognized the distinct phases they go through, and suggested they need to experience all four stages before they achieve maximum effectiveness. He refined and developed the model in 1977 with the addition of a fifth stage.

In this stage:
team members are becoming familiar with one another.
the tasks are identified.
leaders are relied upon for structure.
In this stage:
the team tries to establish functionality.
conflict between members arises.
differing work styles cause unforeseen problems.
members become frustrated and stressed.
Step 5:
In this stage:
the team disbands, hopefully when the task is completed successfully.
achievement brings happiness and relief to team members.
some members may feel a sense of loss after being disbanded.
In this step:
members start to resolve differences.
team communication improves.
roles and responsibilities are accepted.
mutual respect increases.
In this step:
the team's identity, loyalty, and moral are high.
hard work and trust leads to the achievement of the team's goal.
The value of Tuckman's model is that its helps understand that teams evolve. It also shows us how they may encounter different problems at different stages in their development.
