Using a case study approach the purpose of this paper aims to create an understanding for managers how their associates handle change after the occurrence of a company re-organization. This understanding is supported by the using Tuckman’s 5 steps to group formation to manage new teams and create cohesion. This paper provides for a powerful framework to create a cohesive, new team following a re-organization. It is proposed that managers who have an understanding of group formation and handling change will help their associates navigate through the rough waters of a re-organization, resulting in a loss of associates. It is primarily the line manager that will have the most influence on the cohesiveness of the new team.
