Step 1- Problem or Opportunity Statement:

Takatuf Oman has established a team from deferent Subsidiaries Companies  called Oman PMI 2014 to develop the competency of the staff working under OCC group and 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”:

Dr Bruce Tuckman published his Forming Storming Norming Performing model in 1965. He added a fifth stage, Adjourning, in the 1970s. The Forming Storming Norming Performing theory is an elegant and helpful explanation of team development and behavior :


What kind of leadership style appropriate of each the phases? Below is showing the type of leaderships styles required for each stage according to Blanchard’s Situational Leadership model .


Step 3- Develop the Outcomes for Each Alternative:

The team was asked to answer the 32 questions survey to identify the position of Oman PMI 2014 team in the Tuckman’s model. The table below show the result for each 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 result is showing  a big range between ( 8 and 33) . Delphi technique with P70 is decided to be used to identify the where is Oman PMI 2014 team staying in Tuckman model .



Step 4- Selection of the Acceptable Criteria:

The table below shown the result of using Delphi technique with P70; The Z factor is .53 from Standard Z table:

  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

From the table Oman PMI 2014 team is 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.

  1. Sorry Khalid, while you easily have a very well done 5 star posting my best advice to you would be to look over the technical specifications or talk to your colleagues who got 4 or 5 stars and ask them the following questions:
    #1- What is the MINIMUM number of REFERENCES required for each blog?
    #2- What is the acceptable format that you must use for all your references?

    Take 20-30 minutes to find the answers to these questions then take 5 minutes to FIX your W1 blog and repost it as W1.2 and I will be happy to give you the 5 stars you SHOULD have gotten had you followed the technical specifications.
