Strawser 2 TASK FORCE PROJECT The Task Force project was fun and I sincerely hoped that we would be able to spend more time on it. Our committee was assembled because the world as we know it is gone. Our goal was to choose only five people from the remaining survivors to carry on the human race. We met only briefly, and reached our consensus in about 10 minutes. I noticed some things we didn’t do. We did not follow developmental stages accurately; the slow emergence of power in our group was somewhat of an issue. Cohesiveness was definitely achievable, but not in the short time provided. When it comes to solving problems in groups, research shows that the shortest distance to a solution isn’t always a straight line. Many groups seem to follow a four- stage process to come upon their decision, the orientation stage, the conflict stage, the emergence stage, and the reinforcement stage. (Adler and Rodman p.303) This creates structure within a group and makes sure that everyone is familiar with each other as well as the issues to be handled. Group goals are present in all groups. If a group is to function effectively, group goals must be clearly defined and understood by all group members. (Study Guide p.63)
