They simplify the sequence and group the Forming-Storming-Norming stages together as the Transforming phase, which they equate with the initial performance level. This addition is designed to reflect that there is a period after Forming where the performance of a team gradually improves and the interference of a leader content with that level of performance will prevent a team progressing through the Storming stage to true performance.
They may be motivated but are usually relatively uninformed of the issues and objectives of the team. This is then followed by a Performing phase that leads to a new performance level which they call the Reforming phase.
