DISCUSSION 1 Assignment Details This assignment has 4 parts: The Nominal Group Technique (NGT) is a common method of group decision making.

REPLY 1 Nominal Group Technique (NGT) is a beneficial and valuable tool to use when you are dealing with a group of individuals to solve an issue and some of them are too vocal and others are shy or do not want to rock the boat by having an opposite opinion (ASQ, 2019).

A group devised discussion that leads to possible solutions that the employees put input into. There would be more conflict if everyone voted together especially if ties are created and deciding votes swing one way or the other opposite either opposing groups (Community Development, n.d.). When incorporating technology into multiple site NGT you can have every site put input into the problem at hand to get a larger options pool. Having all the sites work on the issues will increase the adaptability to the decision made since all the employees had input into it. We use Skype at work for a lot of offsite meetings. When using the employees past experience’s and using them to help solve the problem, you engage the employees into the change that needs to be made and this will make it easier to implement. REPLY 2

Nominal Group Technique (NGT) is a structured method for group brainstorming that encourages contributions from all members through anonymity. As dynamic teams may be comprised of individuals from differing backgrounds, strengths, and weaknesses, it is crucial that all members can contribute equally. The benefit to NGT is that the tendency that social dynamics has to influence others is removed from the decision-making process ( Editorial Board , 2014).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
