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:
|Mohammed Al Mujaini||20||20||25||28|
|Hani Al Zadjali||25||25||29||27|
|Said Al amri||8||8||10||22|
|Ahmed Al Azizi||23||21||25||29|
|Haitham Al Raisi||32||29||30||35|
|Majid AL Yaqoubi||23||18||25||27|
|Tariq Al Nabhani||21||27||20||23|
|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|
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.
