Stages of Team Development

The benefits of site-based management and teacher empowerment have been widely touted, but the reality does not always live up to the promise. Drawing on their more than 30 years of experience in school reform, Nancy Mohr and Alan Dichter talk about the purpose of shared decision making (it's for the students, not the adults) and about what they now know about helping a faculty become a learning organization (it's a developmental process, with identifiable stages). Mohr and Dichter use their own experiences to illustrate how the process plays out and is required at each stage along the way.
