Den välfungerande arbetsgruppen. En genomgång av forskning och praktikererfarenheter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter


The purpose of this report is to present a critical review of research and practice based knowledge about factors conductive to ”good functioning” of work teams in the light of the evolving knowledge of developmental processes in groups. Conceptions of work team effectiveness are critically evaluated and new formulations presented. Factors such as two-way causality, boundary based defintions of team goals and the importance of the work team´s socio-ecology are stressed. Finally the analysis is framed in an integrative model taking into account developmental, process/structure, goal type and socioecological context factors.
