Correlation analyses were specified as one-tailed in order to examine the direction of the
relationships. A rough inspection of linearity was assessed using SPSS Scatterplots (Tabachnick
& Fidell, 2001). Bivariate scatterplots showed acceptable oval shapes for team potency and stage
of team development, as well as for the team potency and manager potency variables (Figures 5
through 7, see Appendix B). The scatterplot for manager potency and stage of team development
variables was not as well defined.
For H1, it was hypothesized that as teams move toward a more advanced stage of
development, team potency perceptions would increase. In support of H1, the correlation
between potency perceptions of teams and stage of team development yielded a statistically
significant relationship with r = 0.83, p < 0.01.
Support for H3 was not found between manager perceptions of potency and stage of team
development with r = 0.23, p > 0.05.
For H5, it was hypothesized that as team perceptions of potency increase, manager
perceptions of potency would increase. In support of H5, the correlation between potency
perceptions of teams and potency perceptions of managers yielded a statistically significant
relationship with r = 0.26, p < 0.05.
Two separate one-way between-subjects ANOVAs were conducted to determine if
reliable mean differences exist in the perceptions of potency of teams and managers as a function
of stage of team development. For H2, it was hypothesized that team potency perceptions would
be greater for a more advanced team compared to the perceptions of a less advanced team.
Findings revealed an overall significant difference F(3, 41) = 33.64, p < .001, between teams
within different stages of development. To pinpoint the differences and to confirm the directional
aspect of H2, six post hoc analyses using Tukey's tests were performed. With the exception of
the comparison between pseudo teams and potential teams, post hoc tests showed all mean
