You have been invited by the human resources manager of a medium-sized company to prepare a "report" on "In Groups and Out Groups." The report will be distributed to departmental VPs and directors.
In the report you should:
Introduce the concepts of In and Out groups.
Describe a situation where you (or someone you know) were a member of the "In group" and another situation where you (or someone you know) were a member of the "Out group." This should be an example from your own business experience.
Analyze and explain the major differences between the two situations.
Explain how having an in-group and an out-group affected the groups and the organization.
To what extent was membership in either the in-group or the out-group based on task related performance factors? What non-task related factors entered into the decision?
Describe the implications for leadership and a leader's relationship with followers.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 3:06 am ad1c9bdddf
