III. CONCEPT REFERENCES FOR PART C (You can copy paste some of this concepts, but please maintain them bold, to cite them after properly.
Although it is tempting to define group performance solely in terms of its production or efficiency, “team effectiveness is a richer concept that encompasses the productive output of the team, The social processes the team uses in carrying out the work enhance
members’ capability of working together interdependently in the future and the group experience contributes positively to the learning and personal well-
being of individual team members”
In order to succeed, teams require a common purpose and specific goals. It is also helpful to ensure that teams have a sense of group efficacy—a feeling that the team has the capability to successfully accomplish its task and a shared mental model which refers to member´s shared, organized understanding and mental representation of tasks-related and team related knowledge.
Group Cohesion is “the degree to which member are motivated to stay in the group” Cohesiveness is a double-edged sword for managers because it can either enhance or impede group performance. Cohesive groups tend to be better at achieving their goals than are non-cohesive groups. Thus, cohesive groups that have the goal of increased productivity will be more productive.
Another issue that must be addressed with respect to group process is group norms. A norm is an unwritten, often implicit rule that defines what attitudes and behaviors characterize a “good” group member versus a “bad”, group member or what constitutes acceptable behavior, attitudes, and feelings. Norms are the group’s shared beliefs about appropriate behavior, attitudes, and perceptions concerning matters that are important to the group.
All groups create norms as they develop and mature. In and of themselves, norms are neither good nor bad. The important point is whether or not the norms that exist support the group’s work or act to reduce effectiveness. In this way, group norms control the behavior of members and make group life more predictable.
