Although widely cited, Tuckman’s Five-Stage Model may be unrealistic from an organizational perspective. Connie Gersick proposes that groups do not necessarily progress linearly from one step to another; rather, as work groups develop, periods of little progress are punctuated by bursts of energy in which the majority of the group’s work is accomplished. This assignment will help you understand the Five-Stage Model.

Reflect on a team of which you have been a member. Describe what happened in each stage of the group’s development according to Tuckman’s Five-Stage Model. Was it a mature group? How did you know?
Did the group progress linearly from one step to another or did it experience periods of little progress punctuated by bursts of energy, as Gersick describes? Justify your response.

Your assignment should be two to three pages in length, written in APA style format. You must reference to or three quality, peer-reviewed journal articles in your paper.

Reference all sources using APA format. For guidance using APA format, please refer to the table in the APA Style section of the syllabus.
