Based on statistical results, the six hypotheses that have been proposed show a significant positive effect on all relationships between variables and the two hypotheses have no effect. The indirect effect of the independent variable on group achievement produces one strategy, which is to link group cohesiveness to group achievement through Valuntary adhocratic capability.
