Using Tuckman's Model to Effectively Navigate Team Development

As Project Managers, we are challenged to help teams understand the big picture, move beyond bottlenecks, resolve conflict in a productive fashion and deliver quality projects/products on time, under budget and within scope. While processes may be predictable and repeatable, people are often not. Managing people in a world where the only constant is change can prove to be quite a conundrum at times. In this session, we'll take a closer look at the five stages of Tuckman's Model and how it relates to team dynamics and development. We'll cover different techniques that can be used to help identify potential bottlenecks and help your team shift gears if they find themselves stuck in the early stages.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Participants will learn about the characteristics of the 5 different stages of Tuckman’s model and signs to help identify which stage the team is in
  • Participants will learn different techniques that can help to improve communication and emotional intelligence/awareness
  • Participants will learn more about some of the different type of events that can trigger a change in stages of Tuckman’s Model (Example: Shifting from performing back to Storming based on certain triggers)

Expected Key takeaway: 

  • Participants will learn more about the dynamics of Tuckman's Model and insight on how to effectively navigate teams throughout the different stages
