increase the team’s effectiveness. For one, he probably should have helped to facilitate better communication between Sasha and Dana, as this seemed to be one of the main areas of conflict in the group. He could do this by trying to have a less biased point of view with a healthy dose of skepticism for the ideas on both sides. Because Sasha and Dana often disregarded each other’s ideas, it would be good to use a method like brainstorming or brainwriting or even an affinity diagram in order to find a middle ground. Being able to mediate is something that Henry could have done to be more of an official leader for this team and as a result make the team more productive. Conclusion All in all, this case has a great number of element in it that made it more complicated as the members went on and kept investing more and more in the company causing an escalation of commitment problem. There was clearly a problem with marketing the product before the team came together, but the team brought together to solve it were inefficient in communication and not as productive as they could have been. Henry should have used better judgment to overcome his own biases and tried to solve the problem in a more strategic and systemic approach that utilized each member’s strengths rather than having the team disintegrate into one that lacks unity and vision.

    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.
