Explicit and Implicit Roles in a Committee

Briefly describe both an explicit and implicit role and an explicit and implicit norm of a group or committee to which you have belonged or know about. Then discuss how one of the implicit roles or norms of the group is enforced, what deviations might occur from the role or norm, and what the consequences are for deviating from or violating it. Finally, analyze the effects that indirect benefits of participation and methods of enforcement or punishment, such as sanctioning, have on group productivity, and how activities that detract from productivity are deterred.
