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.
Create a 10- to 15-slide (title and references slides are not included in the slide count) Microsoft® PowerPoint®, research-based presentation to help the company understand the various benefits and pitfalls of team- or group-based work.
Address the following in your presentation:
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.
Include a minimum of 3 credible, peer-reviewed resources in your presentation. (No papers will be accepted in this course without references and citations).
Complete speaker notes for each slide, they must be at least one paragraph long.
NOTE: speaker notes are needed for the introduction and conclusion slides as well.
Format the citations in your presentation according to APA guidelines.
Submit your assignment.
