All the team members take up responsibility for the purpose of succeeding as a team. The basketball team members, in Glory Road, are focused on playing in the great through the guidance of Don Haskins as their coach.Performing is the fourth team; this stage entails the team performing through establishing different ways to get the situation right avoiding conflict or supervision from outside. This is clearly illustrated when the Texas Western Basketball Team works its way up to contending for the NCCA championship.The final stage, courtesy of Tuckman and Jensen, is the adjourning or/and transforming stage; where supervisors are required and expected is expected to ‘drop’ some part or the whole team and move on (dissolution of the team). It entails annihilation of functions, conclusion of duties and lessening of reliance; might be traumatizing especially when dissolution was not planned for.The Western Texas basketball team followed the stages of team development, though not in a systematic manner and some of the stages were given more attention and time than others. Conclusively, the Tuckman and Jensen’s stages are most appropriate in group/team development in any situation and if well implemented can be of great assistance in a group’s success.Tuckman B &.
