1Case Study: Building a CoalitionMGMT591
2First of all, in order to successfully build a coalition for Woodson Foundation, we should beaware of the necessary stags of group development that we are going to go over:The first stage is Forming, which is bringing the new plan in development by creating anexecutive team with the assistance of Human Resources to select the correct candidates for thenew occupations available.The second period is Storming, which brings conflict among the members of the group,principally because each representative of the groups has his or her particular interests. To gothrough this phase, they have to think as a team without all the doubtful behaviorThe third phase will be Norming. To succeed here, they should set their common goal up tobegin the performance, feel more comfortable with the rest of the team, and work efficientlytogether. An important issue to take into account here is that there has to be someone who leadsthat work assuming the role of leader.The following stage is Performing. This stage will start when the team starts to perform togetherto achieve the objective set up by the association.Last but not least, the Adjourning stage starts when the team members feel a sense of loss andtheir enthusiasm decay because the team's task is approaching to the end. Because of this phase,it is imperative to distinguish the team members for their achievements and exult the team'soverall accomplishment.In this case, since the group is not able to go through their own alleged and cannot completelysynchronize to succeed, they are stuck in the stages of Forming and Storming. “Each group has
3its own interests, and in some cases these are directly opposed to one another.” (Robbins andJudge, 630). They arenot taking into account that, know, they have a common goal to work for.Furthermore, I believe the principal problem in Woodsom Foundation is the extremely differentbackground of each member of the group, making them strongly differ in some vital views tostart the project, like the participation of the parents on it. Secondly, there would be somedemographic diversity issues, considering that “most of the students served by the Washington,D.C., school district are African American, along with large populations of Caucasians andHispanics. The NCPIE makeup generally matches the demographic diversity of the areas served
