Team Decision Making
The impact of conformity has many harmful effects on humanity. Typically, various levels of management make decisions impacting many teams. As a result, the teams perceive a lack of choice in the decisions, and they are left only with the choices on implementation. This creates a significant context of conformity and causes resistance and significant implementation challenges.
Select one of the teams that you identified for the week 1 final project. Seek approval from the instructor early in the week if a different team is needed for the project. Using the selected team and its larger organizational context, create a process allowing all stakeholders to be engaged in decision-making. Be sure to consider the following:
- Who are the key stakeholders in a decision? How do you identify them?
- How does a leader elicit input from stakeholders so the decision builds upon the collective wisdom of the team?
- Describe some ways to make sure you obtain authentic commitment from team members.
- How can you create an accountability structure ensuring the efficient implementation of a decision made by the group?
The final paragraph of your post (3 to 4 sentences) should summarize the one or two main points that you are attempting to make in your post.
