Groups Meet . . . Teams Improve: Building Teams That Learn
Hillier, Janet; Dunn-Jensen, Linda M.
Journal of Management Education, v37 n5 p704-733 Oct 2013
Although most business students participate in team-based projects during undergraduate or graduate course work, the team experience does not always teach team skills or capture the team members' potential: Students complete the task at hand but the explicit process of becoming a team is often not learned. Drawing from organizational learning and group/team theory, this article presents a "learning team model" that emphasizes feedback at the team--not individual--level of analysis by establishing a team feedback tool that can be easily and regularly used to improve performance. In addition to the feedback tool, a structured process is presented in which students learn to "become" a team.
