From the Paper:

"According to Sharma, Roychowdhury, and Verma (2009) through teamwork, organizations build camaraderie and trust amongst their members. An organization's performance is improved through teamwork. In addition, it can boost employee well-being, enhance the interest and motivation of employees, reduce employee performance fluctuations, improve work morale, and minimize stress levels, allowing employees to come up with new ideas and performance improvement. It is through the collaborative and coordinated efforts of a team that an organization is formed. The organization itself, in general, operates as a single team, with all members working towards the objectives and goals set forth by the organization. For these reasons, the concept of team building is critical to an organization's success.
"As cited by Edison (2008), Tuckman's seminal 1965 research established the traditional model of team development. The five phases of team building are: forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning. Forming occurs at the beginning of team building. Processes are often ignored and members test tolerance of the system, during this phase. During the storming phase, members vie for position within the team and power struggles ensue. The norming stage sees agreement and consensus beginning to occur, as facilitated by the leader, with roles within the team clear and accepted. Performing occurs once the team understands clearly their goals and has a shared focus (English). Lastly, adjourning occurs when the goals of the team have been reached and the team is dissolved."
