Quick Reference

A model of cohesion that suggests that teams and groups have a life cycle from creation or formation, to dissolution, and that cohesion follows this same pattern. In one model, five main stages have been identified: encountering, boundary-testing, role creation, producing or constructing, and dissolution. Thus, cohesion increases after the creation of a group, levels off when the group is well established, and then decreases until members of the group finally separate. See also team.
