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:
|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 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|
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.
