2.0 How we have developed our team
To develop our team, we experienced a lot of theories but the Tuckman’s team development theory is more applicable in this situation. According to Joshua (2018), this theory describes five stages that teams may grow through. These are forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning. The first stage of this theory is forming (Philip, 2018). This is an introduction theory. By using this stage, we got to know each other and tried to make a good impression on others. In this stage, we also developed our trust in our teammates and got to know the team members’ many weaknesses and strengths. In the storming stage, we came to know many flaws of team members. We knew the friction and downfall of team members. In the next stage which is norming, stage is all about correcting the flaws, and friction also got flexible and every team member knew they are role-playing their work. In the performing stage, we performed and presented ourselves very gracefully and promoted a method that made team goals skillfully. The last stage of this theory is adjourning and it is all about the emotions and the feelings throughout the group work.
3.0 My role and tasks
Belbin’s team role theory has explained the different and individual roles in group work. This theory has presented several roles of teamwork. These are plant, resource investigators, sharper, specialist, team worker, finisher, coordinator, implemental, and so on (Ross, 2017). Each of the roles has a significant impact on teamwork. In my course work, first I worked teamwork where I could understand my teammate’s feelings and be a trusted person, social-oriented and diplomatic. This is an ability to promote team spirit and many situations. Then, I wanted to work at a plant where I could have genius imagination, intellectual thinking. By gaining these skills I could do my work with much creativity and try to fix the problem. Then I worked as a sharper where I learned the courage and motivated myself when I faced any challenges. Next, I worked as a resource investigator where I inquired about my skills and experience in developing contacts.
4.0 The strengths of our group
The strength theory is a way of viewing clients as lively and wealthy in facing animosity. This theory is known as social work practice theory which concentrates on separate strength and self-realization in teamwork. Also, this theory marks on oncoming strengths and outcomes which separate get in teamwork to a crisis (Agnes, 2017). Our group had much strength in the whole journey. Each of the team members was supportive, friendly, and well mannered. Everyone was very informatics and they were very curious to learn about many new things. Thus, our coursework had a lot of information. Besides, our team captain was very good at communicating. He worked patiently. Most importantly, he was a very experienced and skillful manager and team leader.
5.0 The difficulties we have faced in our team
A person’s self-concept and self-opinion are based on his/her membership or social group which refers to the social identity theory. This theory was developed by Tajfel. According to Saul (2018), this theory is applied to three rareness strategies. These are social creativity, social competition, and individual mobility. In our teamwork, the main challenges came from a social competition. This is because every team member including me didn’t have much idea about the competition. This society is full of competition but everyone especially I have faced this social competition.

Team analysis theory is applicable for the difficulties which we faced in group work. This analysis applies to everyone’s separate tasks (Will, 2018). This theory is also referred to identify the knowledge, ability, attitude, and skills (Munir, 2019).
