W1_nunug_Tuckman Analysis Assessment

1. Problem Definition

Emerald Team 2017 has been formed during five days class, consist people from different culture, background and experience. Now, we enter long distance learning as the second stage to achieve our main goals ; Pass AACE certification on first attempt and generate Return on Training Investment (RoTI).  To achieve project goal, it is important to establish strategy of leadership to keep Team solid and to achieve main goal efficiently.

2. Development of feasible alternatives

According Professor Bruce Tuckman in 1970, there are 4 stages for teamwork development :

  1. Forming
  2. Storming
  3. Norming
  4. Performing

Those five stages seem to be sequence that Team must be passed to build cohesive team. From Forming stages, where Team members must deal with interpersonal issues, to Performing stages, where team members already comfortable with each other and group normed have been accepted.

3. Possible Solution / Alternative

Survey was conducted for  each team member by filling 32 question. Using Tuckman’s model we can understand and identify what stage of team work Emerald Team is operating in. The group can be either in Forming phase, Storming Phase, Norming Phase or Performing Phase. Delphi technique with P70 used to analysis the data.

4. Selection of Criteria

Summary result of the survey data using Delphi technique with P70 as follow :

Tabel 1: Team Survey Result

Tabel 2: P70 Result with Delphi Technique

As shown on the table 2, the team position is in Performing Stage.

5. Analysis and Comparison of the Alternatives

As shown on the table 2, Final result is in Performing Stage. The reason behind this stage because most of the member come from same Company, they already have same code of conduct, working environment and working ethic. Another reason structural issues have been settled by making project charter.

6. Selection and Preferred Alternatives

Table 2 show that the Team has the highest score at Performing Stage. In this stage, Team is performing at high level, and the matching leadership style for this stage is Delegating. Leader will able to focus more of energy on leadership activities and less on supervisory.

7. Performance Monitoring and the Post Evaluation of Result

Periodic monitoring and survey is needed to conduct, for the leader to monitor team performance and check the team member perception change over time.

  1. EXCELLENT Pak Nunug!! Nice work!! You followed our 7 step process near perfectly. About the only advice I can offer for future postings would be to use more graphics (see what your colleagues did) on the grounds that using graphics as much as possible helps you to communicate more effectively plus it cuts down on the number of words. (“A picture says 1,000 words”)

    Your citations were excellent as well.

    Keep up the great work and looking forward to seeing your W2 blog posting.
