Explore recent changes that have occurred in your work environment (or community) and evaluate what went well and what could have been done better. Put these thoughts in the framework of Kotter’s Change Management Model.
Analyze the development of the team in terms of the five-phase model and the punctuated equilibrium model. Which model does the best job of describing how the team evolved? Analyze the group in terms of the nine situational factors that influence team development. What factors positively contributed to group performance? What factors negatively contributed to the group’s performance? How did the group try to overcome the negative factors? What could you have done differently to overcome these negative factors? Analyze how effectively the group managed meetings. What did the group do well? What didn’t the group do well?
