This study is an exploratory examination of the usefulness of a family therapy-grounded theoretical perspective to that of the self-managing team domain. Specifically, the authors use the Beavers system model, a widely accepted clinical model of family development, as the basis for assessing various aspects of team development. Results partially support the utility of the Beavers model linking individuals' perceptions of their teams to both objective and subjective measures of performance.
