Clinical Trials Administrator;Dec2009, Vol. 7 Issue 12, p140
The article outlines a four-stage model for developing a high-performance clinical trial research team. These include forming personal relationships characterized by dependence, safe pattern behavior, guidance and direction as well as storming or having the chance to openly disagree or ague about an issue for effective bargaining and quality results. Emphasis is also given on the value of making rules or norms of the culture of a team and on performing a task to solve a problem while demonstrating group identity and loyalty at the same time.
