Team development and leadership remain important roles for Extension. The objective of this article is to demonstrate how Tuckman’s model for small group development can be used to examine the evolution of teams retrospectively for the purpose of improving future practice. Our experience leading Nevada’s Nutrition Network served as the example here. Critical points in the evolution of this team were identified and alternative actions were cited.
