Essay B (& IR#4)
In Ch. 11, Forsyth identifies many components that
contribute to effective decision-making and many
common problems groups face (Tables 11-1 & 11-2
summarize a few).
A. Drawing on Forsyth, identify 2 positive and 2
negative aspects of the group decision process for
case 19 (Perkins & Abrams) and for case 20 (Shaw).
Support your analysis with specific evidence from
B. Choose one case and make a recommendation for
improving the group decision process that is both
SPECIFIC and FEASIBLE (i.e., takes into
consideration the constraints the group faces).
NOTE: The Individual Responses need to address some or all of this assignment. You might want to have two people specialize on one case, two on the other, or have two people specialize on Part A, two on B. Be sure the division of labor is clear to all. EVERYONE must complete an Individual Response.
