How Can You Develop Your Team?

Teamwork is the way to successfully complete most projects. Team development is the most important thing. I have two things below for the team development. First one is training can help people to understand themselves, each other, and how to work better in teams. The second one is Team building activities include physical challenges and psychological preference indicator tools.

Team development has five stages. There are,

  1. Forming

This phase is where the team meets and learns about the project and their formal roles and responsibilities. Team members tend to independent and not as open in this phase.

  1. Storming

During this phase, the team begins to address the project work, technical decisions, and the project management approach. If team members are not collaborative and open to differing ideas and perspectives, the environment can become counterproductive.

  1. Norming

In the norming phase, team members begin to work together and adjust their work habits and behaviors to support the team. The team learns to trust each other.

  1. Performing

Teams that reach the performing stage function as a well-organized unit. They are interdependent and work through issues smoothly and effectively.

  1. Adjourning

In the adjourning phase, the team completes the work and moves on from the project. This typically occurs when staff is released from the project as the deliverable is completed or as part of carrying out the close Project or phase process.

Manage Project Team is the process of tracking team member performance, providing feedback, resolving issues and managing team changes to optimize project performance. The key benefit of this process is that it influences team behavior, manages conflict, resolves issues, and appraises team member performance.


Observation and conversation, Project performance appraisals, Conflict management and Interpersonal skills are the tools and techniques for manage project team.

Team development gives,

  • Improve skills of team members in order to increase their ability to complete project deliverables, while lowering costs, reducing schedules, and improve quality.
  • Improve feelings of trust and agreement among team members in order to raise morale, lower conflicts, and increase teamwork.
  • Create a dynamic and cohesive team culture to improve both individual and team productivity.

“If the human race wishes to have a prolonged and indefinite period of material prosperity, they have only got to behave in a peaceful and helpful way toward one another”
