Does work satisfaction increase when groups develop in Wheelan's integrative model of group development? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie har varit att undersöka om det finns något samband mellan ökad arbetstillfredsställelse och grupper som utvecklas framåt från en lägre till en högre fas i Wheelans modell "Integrative Model of Group Development" (IMGD). Den datamängd som använts inhämtades under ett "Europeiska Social Fonden" (ESF) finansierat samarbetsprojekt mellan företagshälsovården och en svensk tillverkningsindustri. Det var 31 ledningsteam med 5-8 personer vardera varav en var linjechef och övriga arbetslagsledare som undersöktes. Frågeformuläret "Group Development Questionnaire" (GDQ) användes för att se i vilka faser enligt modellen IMGD ledningsteamen befann sig i, samt kompletterande tilläggsfrågor kring arbetstillfredsställelse. Mätningarna gjordes vid två tillfällen med sju månaders mellanrum och under den tiden gjordes gruppinterventioner som var ämnade att främja gruppernas utveckling framåt. Resultatet visar att det fanns ett positivt samband mellan ökning av fastillhörighet och ökning av arbetstillfredsställelse. Resultatet visar vidare att även den fasen en grupp befann sig i vid första mättillfället hade ett positivt samband med ökning av arbetstillfredsställelsen sju månader senare.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine whether there is any connection between increased work satisfaction and groups that develop forward from a lower to a higher phase in Wheelans model

"Integrative Model of Group Development" (IMGD). The dataset used in this study was collected during an "European Social Fund" (ESF) funded collaborative project between occupational health services and a Swedish manufacturing industry. 31 management teams of 5-8 persons each of whom one was a line manager and the other team leaders were surveyed. The questionnaire "Group Development Questionnaire" (GDQ) where used to see in what phases according to the model IMGD the management teams were found, as well as additional supplementary questions about work satisfaction. The measurements were made on two occasions with seven months in between and during that time group interventions were made that intended to promote the groups' development forward. The results show that there was a positive correlation between increase of phase assignation and increase in work satisfaction. The results further show that even the stage a group was at in the first measurement had a positive correlation with the increase in job satisfaction seven months later.
