Team performance | SP6020 – Team Dynamics and Group Behavior | Argosy University


Scenario: Team Performance

You are part of an organizational team. For the three years prior to a new member joining the team, performance was high. In the year after the new member joined, performance has gone down. The new team member has a slower than usual growth curve. A few months after being employed, the existence of a minor medical issue made it possible for the new team member to avoid some responsibilities. Since that time, the team’s workload has also increased. It would seem as though the team is overworked at this point, and it is starting to take its toll on the team’s overall performance and motivation. 

For the first paragraph of your post, address any one of the following bullet points. Where possible, select a different bullet point than others have been selecting (i.e., we should try to spread the bullet points out so that each is getting equal attention during the discussion.)

  • What stage of team performance would you consider this team to be currently in? Why? What should be done to move the team to the next stage of development or to a healthier stage of development?
  • Looking at this situation, explain what intrinsic and extrinsic motivations may be influencing the change in team performance?
  • Describe what is happening at the individual level within the team. What are some of the task and relational dynamics affecting the team?

For the second paragraph of your post, choose one of the following bullet points. Where possible, select a different bullet point than others have been selecting (i.e., we should try to spread the bullet points out so that each is getting equal attention during the discussion).

  • If you were the team leader in this situation, and you had the opportunity to make changes, what are some of the changes you would recommend?
  • Would it be a good idea to solicit input from the team members in regard to finding a solution? Why or why not? What would be the advantages and dangers?
  • What could be the significant problems for the team and its members if the performance continues to decrease? Explain what the team leader’s role is in ensuring this does not happen.

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.
