Why this program is relevant: Groups are a fundamental part of organizations. They’re often small – just a few people. But they can also be quite large – possibly in the hundreds. This makes it essential that organizations understand what makes groups tick, why they’re integral to an organization, and why strong groups can be paramount to creating dynamic teams.
The Challenge: Over the past decade or two, the role of groups inside an organization has diminished. In its place, teams have taken on a dominant status and focus. However, teams can be fragile and often implode. When this occurs projects derail, teams become ineffective and organizations become exposed.
