Matching Belbin Roles to the Nature of the Team Assignment
Judith
The nature of the team assignment determines the ideal composition of the team:
- If the assignment must be finished very fast, then we'll need shapers and finishers.
- If the assignment is a complex brainstorming session on new products or processes, then we'll need resource investigators, plants and specialists.
 

 
What Roles Depending on the Task of the Team
Christer B Jansson, Partner, Malta, Member
Even if we still need all team roles, the focus on which role should be the leader is indeed changing depending on the task or assignment the team has.
In the book "Management Teams Why they Succeed or Fail", Belbin wrote a chapter or two about this. Worth reading. For a creative team you need a Plant and a Monitor Evaluator who can challenge the Plan. It should be lead by a Coordinator that can handle the above, so the Plant's feelings don´t get hurt.
A team that needs to finish something very quick needs a Shaper as the leader and then the roles that are needed depend on the task. It is all in the book!
