4 Understanding Groups Two or more interacting and interdependent individuals who come together to achieve particular goals. Formal groups Work groups defined by the organization’s structure that have designated work assignments and tasks. Appropriate behaviors are defined by and directed toward organizational goals. Informal groups Groups that are independently formed to meet the social needs of their members.

5 Stages in Group Development
Forming Members join and begin the process of defining the group’s purpose, structure, and leadership. Storming Intragroup conflict occurs as individuals resist control by the group and disagree over leadership. Norming Close relationships develop as the group becomes cohesive and establishes its norms for acceptable behavior. Performing A fully functional group structure allows the group to focus on performing the task at hand. Adjourning The group prepares to disband and is no longer concerned with high levels of performance.

Work is becoming more complex, which requires a group or team effort Teams are groups where members with complementary skills hold themselves mutually accountable for team performance Building effective groups and teams requires knowledge of task/technology, people, formal organization arrangements and group culture

12 Case: How to save this team
Does this task need teamwork? Why didn't the team work? What need to be done in order to make the team work?

I am more productive when I work alone. I don’t even like working in a team. I can’t change my schedule to attend team meetings. I do not know what’s going on in my team. I feel like I’m left out of the team. Some of the members did not participate. I am kind of surprised. The report we turned in is different than I expected. We relied on Joe for company info. He did not get it. We’re screwed.
