W1_ Hameed_ Tuckman Assesment

Step 1- Problem or Opportunity Statement:

OOC form a new company called “Takatuf Oman” to support OOC subsidiaries companies in HR and employees developments. One of its program is Oman PMI 2014 for a team from deferent OOC group Companies to help them to Pass PMP exam.

The problem in the W1 of the course is how to apply Tuckman tools to identify the situation of the team come from different companies and what type of management is required to manage the team.

Step 2- Develop the “FEASIBLE Alternatives”:

One of the most influential models of teamwork theory was developed in 1965 by Bruce Tuckman. His original model identified four stages that all groups pass through as they move from “newly formed” to “high-performance” teams. In 1977, he revised the model to include a fifth stage. Those stages are Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning:


Stages of Group Development


During the Forming stage, members of the project team meet each other and learn about the tasks they will need to perform.


The Storming stage is characterized by interpersonal issues such as conflict and polarization.


As conflicts become less intense and the team members begin to understand and accept each other, the team will gradually move into the Norming stage.


In the Performing stage, team members are comfortable with each other and group norms have been accepted.


As the project comes to an end, the team moves into the Adjourning stage.

Step 3- Develop the Outcomes for Each Alternative:

Based on the survey given to the Oman PMI 2014 team to identify the position of in the Tuckman’s model. The below table show the result for each team member:

Name Forming storming Norming performing
Ahmed AL-Abri 33 28 30 27
Asma 16 9 19 22
Mohammed Al Mujaini 20 20 25 28
Musallam Al-Awaid 27 28 24 24
Hani Al Zadjali 25 25 29 27
Hassan Albarrami 18 12 20 22
Mahfoodha Al-Shaibani 24 20 26 32
Said Al amri 8 8 10 22
Ahmed Al Azizi 23 21 25 29
Haitham Al Raisi 32 29 30 35
Said Algheilani 13 12 20 25
Murtadha Hameed 23 24 22 27
Majid AL Yaqoubi 23 18 25 27
Hameed alamri 12 14 11 31
Saaed Al-Shehhi 17 12 20 26
Tariq Al Nabhani 21 27 20 23
Khalid Al-Shukaili 12 12 19 29
Khalid Al Maamari 14 10 20 23
Al Moataz Al Hasani 32 27 29 35
Majid Al Rawahi 24 25 23 27
Azzan Al Jardani 22 24 20 28
Suleiman Al Jabri 25 27 26 33

The above table shown the result have wider range between ( 8 and 33). Delphi technique with Probability of 70 is decided to be used to identify Oman PMI 2014 team in which stage based on Tuckman model .



Step 4- Selection of the Acceptable Criteria:

The below table shown the result with P70 using Delphi technique:

Lows Most Highest Mean St. D Sigma Variance P 70
Forming 8 23 33 21 25 4 17 34.34
Storming 8 12 29 20 21 4 12 30.77
Norming 10 20 30 22 20 3 11 33.01
performing 22 27 35 27 13 2 5 34.25

Note: The Z factor is .53 from Standard Z table

The above table clearly shown that Oman PMI 2014 team still in forming stage .

Step 5- Compare and Analyses the Alternative:

The highest score is in the forming stage, and it is a good indication since the project is started last week and we are in the forming stage.

Step 6- Selection of the Preferred Alternative:

As we found in the previous step; forming stage is required leadership with telling style as Blanchard’s Situational Leadership model. The Leader should specifically instruct subordinates what to do and how to do it. The leader defines the roles of the individual or group and provides the what, how, why, when and where to do the task.

Step 7-Performance Monitoring and the Post Evaluation of Result:

Oman PMI 2014 still in the forming stage and it is required to monitoring the project team monthly to check if there are any improvement in the works and deliverables of the individual member.







One thought on “W1_ Hameed_ Tuckman Assesment

  1. Sorry Hameed, but not only did you miss what the feasible alternatives we are considering but your citations are not in conformance to APA formatting.

    Very concerning to me that so many of you are NOT taking the time to review what others have done before you and because you are not doing this you are repeating the same mistakes over and over again. This is NOT a good habit for project managers to get into.

    Doesn’t it make sense that IF you are WORKING SMART, NOT HARD, you will look at what others have done who got 4 or 5 stars then follow their lead?

    Think about my advice for future postings!!!
