Research Project

Students will research team effectiveness in a selected organization and develop an intervention in the form of enhanced group/team effectiveness and skill training program to improve team effectiveness. They will make a presentation to the class describing this process. The intervention should provide group, organizational, culture factors, and skills designed to enhance team dynamics.

Utilizing a variety of approaches and training techniques students drawing from course materials, experience, scholarly and practical considerations, students will formulate an approach to facilitate and design a training program. Consideration should be given to factors that enhance effectiveness, productivity, trust and cohesion, and team synergy. Special attention should be paid to issues of organizational culture and diversity when designing this program/approach.
