Dr Bruce Tuckman’s Theory of Group Development

Team Working

The Management guru Charles Handy  once described the organisation of people akin to herding cats – difficult by design! As a result, there are few managers who escape the often tricky problem of managing people. People tend to find themselves in a managerial position because they have excelled at certain skills, be it handling a budget, administration, decision making, etc, but if they are then going to manage a team, it is clearly necessary that they understand how people work together and how to keep individuals motivated.

Groups play an increasingly important team role in our lives. They affect the way we think, what we value and believe, how we feel and how we behave and they play an increasingly important role in the effective performance of organisations. We have seen an increasing move to the specialisation of individuals. This has led to a lack in breadth of skills or knowledge in order to make decisions alone about complex issues. Hence a concerted group effort is needed which is why team development is crucial.
