The concept of the selfregulating work group isnot new. Whilst much has been written about itthere are no reliable statistical data about itsincidence, perhaps because of the difficulty ofadequately describing this form of workorganisation. Its use, however, would not appearto be widespread. Nevertheless, it remains oneof a variety of work forms for companies toconsider in searches for enhanced productivity,flexibility, employee involvement and worksatisfaction. It is with this in mind that some ofthe basic ideas underpinning the selfregulatingwork group and conditions surrounding itsintroduction are considered.
