It has been shown that group organizational citizenship behavior (GOCB) has a great impact on group outcomes.
Because of its importance on group performance and effectiveness, previous research has explored GOCB from
various perspectives. However, very little attention has been paid to the effect of group developmental stages on
GOCB. In this article, we develop a theoretical model of GOCB that incorporates stages of group development.
By examining GOCB in the context of group developmental stages, our model provides important theoretical
and practical implications.
