B enny brankoff Teams are an essential part of the leading facet of the P-O-L-C framework. Looking at the team role typology, how might you categorize the roles played by the teams in this case? Robert Henderson's implementation of team work for the General Electric Company consisted of contractors, completers, contributors, and a coordinator by creating a team with specialized training. The contractors were the janitors and cleaners hired to take care of menial labor to allow the contributors and completers to focus on using their talents solely for the jet engine project. The completers and contributors consisted of the men and women handpicked by Henderson to complete training for a Federal-Aviation Administration (FAA) license and to use the superior training to contribute towards a project that will determine the fate of the General Electric company. Finally, the coordinator is Robert Henderson who handpicked and brought this group of individuals together assigning them their specific tasks to accomplish this goal. What do you think brought individuals at GE together to work as a cohesive team? What brings a team together is not just a good leader or a compatible personality, it is the common end goal and sense of reward which unites people of different backgrounds together.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
