Module 5 Discussion

Management, Teams Building, and Group Dynamics

Did you know that team management and member selection can directly impact an organization’s financial bottom-line? Even simply considering personalities before putting together a team could make or break important projects. According to Gino (2015) from the Harvard Business Review, studies show that teams led by extroverts have been found to be high performing, but only if the employees on the team are more passive. Teams led by introverts have been shown to be more effective when members of the team are more proactive and extroverted. There are many factors to be considered when forming effective teams. Please refer to Chapter 4 Management (4.0-4.18) for your responses.

Scenario

Your weekly conversation with your supervisor involves a new manager within your organization. He has been tasked with the formation and leadership of a team assigned to work on a critical project. Project success represents potential revenues in excess of five million dollars. The upfront investment in this project is significant and the stakes are high, but if it works, the return on investment is worth the initial cost.

Leadership wants to ensure that the right people are working on this high-profile project as many departments throughout the organization will be impacted by it. They have asked your supervisor to support the new manager as he builds the project team. Leadership is anticipating justification for team selection before proceeding.
