About Belbin

 

 

Based just outside Cambridge, our purpose is to put into practice the Team Role theory originally developed by Dr Meredith Belbin.

Studied on management courses around the world, and used every day in tens of thousands of organisations, Belbin Team Roles have become the gold-standard method for identifying behavioural contributions in the workplace.
