Summative assessment: groupthink and group-based work

 

Unfortunately, groups can wind up being less, rather than more, than the sum of their parts. Why is this? 

Imagine a local company has contacted you regarding how they use and implement teams within the workplace. 

Include the topics and models covered in the readings: crowding, evaluation apprehension, social loafing, groupthink, group polarization, social pressure, and minority influence. 

 

  • Discuss research findings on the various dynamics of groups of people working together. 
  • Each slide should list the model or theory addressed and a scenario to help the organization grasp the key concepts as well as advice on how to overcome the negative effects. 
  • Translate the research results into everyday terms, as your audience will be people unfamiliar with psychological jargon.
