Looking Back on a New Model of Group Development I

Looking Back on a New Model of Group Development I

Next week we will take the second step in our journey of understanding the development process of the paper “Time and Transition in Work Teams: Toward a New Model of Group Development”. That is, we will read and reflect into the book chapter “Time and Transition in My Work on Teams – Looking Back on a New Model of Group Development” (accessible on Google books.)

The chapter however consist of three parts. The first written by Connie Gersick herself, the second part by Janice M. Beyer, and the third part by Richard Hackman. We will start by reading the first part (page 52-64). In this part, Connie reflects back on the experience of producing this paper.

If you have not read the paper by Gersick yet, you will find it here.
