There are many theories for the stages/phases of team development. The five stage model is one of them. This model is only valid in a few very precise team formations scenarios. Think of a team in which you have participated (project team at work, sport team, etc.). Think back on how the team formed from the first day until the end of the project, or sporting season. Describe what took place. How did you progress into the next stage/phase of team development? Which theory of team development most applied to your example? Why?
