Abstract: Different types of group process variables- trust, group cohesion, group social interactions and group potency are analysed for its relationship with group performance in Information Technology (IT) sector. The group includes 250 members working in 50 self-managed groups for 45 days period. Two independent variables- task completion and work efficiency are considered for assessing group performance. A set of hypothesis is predicted to analyse the relation of the variables with the performance. It is found that the selected group process variables are related to each of the group process variables. Among the four group process variables studied, group potency is proved to be the highest potential variable for an effective group performance.

Keywords: Group Performance, Group Potency, Group Cohesion, Leadership, Task Completion, Self-Efficacy.
