Are The Tuckman Stages Useful For Transformational Leadership?
The purpose of the Tuckman Model is to identify and understand what stage a team is operating in. It can be used at any point in the development process to build awareness of how the team is maturing and developing strategies to move forward.
In 1965, Bruce Tuckman, Emeritus Professor at Ohio State University, published the four stages of team development: Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing. In 1977, he added a fifth stage: Adjourning.
