Exercise #3 is related to Chapter 9: Foundations of Group Behavior and Chapter 10: Understanding Work Teams.
In this exercise, you must work with at least 1 other person (can be outside of this class) to complete a task. Ideally, you would work with 2-3 other people. After completing the task, you will be asked to answer questions about the group processes that occurred during the task. You will be graded for completing the task, but not for how well you do on the task. It is simply a demonstration of a task you may use as a manager in the future. Your responses to the questions regarding the group processes will be graded based on effort and depth of explanation. Do not use the internet to find your answers – do your best to come up with the responses as a group. It is acceptable to not solve all of the puzzles.
To complete the task, download a copy of the Google Doc provided here (Links to an external site.). Follow the directions and fill in your responses, answer the questions regarding the group processes, and then upload the document to Canvas.
