  • There is need for a construct, which is isomorphic with Belbin's notions of team balancing
  • The purpose of this study is to test the relationship between team composition and team performance by applying the construct of Ten Haaf, Bikker and Adriaanse
  • Data were collected from a sample of 39 teams out of a population of 234 undergraduate MBA students
  • Four performance indices of each team were tested against the Ten Haaf et al scores by using Spearman's rank test
  • A statistical relation between team composition according to Ten Haaf et al and team performance was not found
  • It is argued that Ten Haaf et al and other authors do not use constructs according to Belbin's theory of balancing teams
  • The study amplifies on the ambiguity of the concept of team balance
