The Lifecycle of Teams

Tuesday, 21 March 2017 06:33

Teams are dynamic. People change and team members come and go whether by design or unexpectedly. The focus and purpose of a team can change, particularly when working on projects as they move through phases from design to implementation and operations. Additionally, teams will go through different stages of development, or a lifecycle. Each of these shifts necessitates a mindset and a skill change for the team as a whole and the individuals who compose it.

Perhaps the most popular of team models is Tuckman’s Forming-Storming-Norming and Performing model, and the more recent addition of a fifth stage of Adjourning, Transforming, or Mourning. As a high-level concept, the model is fantastic, but in this post we’ll focus on a more detailed lifecycle that is more appropriate in a workplace increasingly dominated by projects. Read on for a handy infographic that you can use to analyse your team's current needs and what you should be focusing on as a leader.

I would most definitely recommend the scavenger hunt, (and I have been) and I'd give it a score of 5. It was well run and well organised. The hunt itself was difficult enough that there was a little bit of a challenge but not so hard that we were all at a loss, and having Aileen there in case we got too stuck was great. My only disappointment was that it was too short! All the guests were raving about how great it was and I was even told by a few that it was the best hens they've ever been to.

Hopefully, that answers your questions well enough. I am so grateful for Aileen and all her help and hardwork. Trying to organise a hens from the other side of the country was going to be difficult enough but Aileen just made it so easy. It was just an amazing day, we had so much fun and I couldn't have asked for it to be better. You're more than welcome to use my response as testimonial. I couldn't rate the experience high enough!
