Abstract:The performance of teams, the cornerstones of an organisation, can be enhanced by socially shared regulation. However, the definition of socially shared regulation and underlying subphases are broad and differ between studies. Also, most studies have been performed within a school context which differs from the workplace, mainly in that it is often less structured.. Thus the results from studies that took place within a school context may not apply in the workplace. The aim of this study is to clarify and sharpen the definition of socially shared regulation and underlying subphases within a workplace setting. Data was collected of three multidisciplinary and self-managing IT teams that work with an agile method. The results show that the teams spend most of their time planning and the least evaluating. Which can imply that teams within these settings can be helped with tools, that reduce time spend on planning and prompts for more evaluation regulation. It also shows that some subphases are context and objective dependent. With the results new definitions of the main phases of socially shared regulation have been developed. During the coding process a new coding scheme has been established that can be used in further research of socially shared regulation in the workplace. In addition scientific and practical implications and suggestions for further research are discussed.
