TEAM ROLES

 

In 1981, after a decade of research on teams, Meredith Belbin identified nine important roles played in efficient teams and developed a model to describe them.

Belbin team roles theory started from the fact that when people become aware of their own strengths and abilities, understanding the role to play within a team, they will be more efficient and will better perform in the working environment. Each team member adopts a role based on the competencies and on the roles played by the others; however, itís possible that the same person to have more roles in accordance to different situations.
