Article publication date: 1 June 1993


Team building is a common thread throughout most organizational change and management development activities. As teams are built, they should evolve through three stages of learning: (1) crisis problem solving, (2) productivity improvement to the current situation, and (3) anticipatory learning. Anticipatory team learning focuses on future‐oriented learning. It is based on three meta skills of team learning: (1) obtaining data, (2) constructing “rich information” and (3) turning rich information into “intelligence” for creating and sustaining peak performance and a higher commitment culture.
