Abstract

Trends in the prevalence of self-managing teams in the Netherlands and Flanders

Trends in the prevalence of self-managing teams in the Netherlands and Flanders

Self-managing teams are perceived as socially and economically beneficial. It is therefore important to determine trends in the prevalence of this type of organizational form. Data from six surveys were used to investigate the prevalence of self-managing teams in The Netherlands and Flanders. Due to variations in survey design, neither in the Netherlands nor in Flanders firm conclusions about trends could be drawn. Instead, the data should be considered as indicative. Bearing this in mind, one may cautiously conclude that self-managing teams seem to be used in a large minority of Dutch and Flemish organizations. Whether a more definitive and empirically better grounded answer is possible, is determined by the availability of valid, reliable and longitudinal data, and the extent to which earlier recommendations for measuring the prevalence of self-managing teams are followed.
