Two Group Development Patterns of Virtual Teams: Linear Progress and Adaptive Progression
Yoon, Seung-won
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Conference (AHRD) (Austin, TX, March 3-7, 2004) p1031-1038 (Symp. 47-3)
Examining the group processes of seven virtual learning teams and the distribution of observed behaviors from each team found two emerged group development patterns, Linear Progression and Adaptive Progression. Linear progression teams followed the linear sequence of orientation, scheduling, exploration, work and decision, progress check and evaluation, refinement and formatting, and termination. Adaptive progression teams found the evaluation of work progress or the outcome of group work was not satisfactory and made an adaptation to the team progress by revisiting one or more of the previous phases based upon needs identified to finish the project.
