    This paper introduces a general team balancing model. It first summarizes existing balancing methods. It is shown that for these methods it is difficult to meet all the conditions posed by Belbin on balanced teams. This mainly is caused by the complexity of the balancing problem. A mathematical model is then introduced that gives one the opportunity to take into account these conditions in mutual coherence and to generate a balanced team in terms of Belbin. A practical application is given. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
