Chapter 10 Team Development Interventions TEST QUESTIONS True/False Questions 1.

The terms “team building” and “team development” have distinctly different meanings and should not be used interchangeably. (F, p. 283) 3.

The application of laboratory learning theories has served as the base for team building. (T, p. 283) 5. Problems that get in the way of effective team operations include interpersonal conflicts and lack of clear objectives. (T, p. 283) 6.

8. Team development should be required even in situations in which members of a division may only occasionally consult with colleagues and do not involve others in their work. (F, p. 285-6) 9.

Problem situations in an organization require a higher degree of team member interaction than complex and simple situations. (T, p. 285-6) 11. Isolates is a term used to describe group members who have little to do with the other members and seem to have little interest in and need for observing the group norms. (T, p. 286) 12.

    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.
