You are to identify your own decision-making tool in the scenario !

  • Identify and explain the group

decision making tool that you would use in this situation, given the new information provided in the Week 4 case study update (Appendix C).

  • Considering your understanding of group processes, formulate a plan that Jamal and Amber might use to build morale and unity within their team.
  • Scenario:

    A new member has joined the team! The other employees are very bonded and have not fully warmed up to her yet. She is excited to hear about the trip and hopes that it will give her a chance to get to know her coworkers better.

    The new employee is pregnant and has doctors clearance to fly to Florida but is not allowed to fly the distance to California. With her pregnancy-related blood pressure problems, the added flight time could be dangerous.

    Amber and Jamal could step in and decide the team will attend the Florida conference in order to accommodate the new employee. Both Amber and Jamal are experts in their field and are authorities over this group. Should they just make the decision for their team?

    Amber and Jamal are expert in their field and are authorities over this group, but they should not make the decision for their own for the team because this will not give good message to the team and let the team decide for the situation.
