Chapter 15. Team Life Cycles

A team evolves through a life cycle from birth to maturity. Each stage of the cycle has predictable transition characteristics. The facilitator who knows what to expect in these stages is better prepared to serve the members’ needs and help team members deal with the situations inherent in each stage.

Jack Orsburn and his colleagues have characterized the predictable stages in team development. [*] Below are the team characteristics for each stage.

[*] Partially adapted from Self-Directed Work Teams, by Jack Orsburn, Linda Moran, Ed Musselwhite, and John Zenger. Published by Business One Irwin, 1990.
