Discuss: Organizational Behavior Paper

Imagine you are working for a successful company that has spent a lot of time focusing strategically on its organizational behavior. Your company has started to gain recognition from similar companies regarding its effective groups and teams. Recently, your company has been approached by other companies to develop and present some of your best practices and lessons learned.

Write a 700- to 800-word handout (brochure, chart, PowerPoint®) that discusses your company’s best practices and lessons learned for developing effective groups and teams.

Address the following in your handout:

Determine strategies that can be used to develop effective groups and teams.
Describe methods that can be used to facilitate phases of team development.
Using the company you selected and wrote about in Week One and Week Two, describe strategies and methods you think the company uses to create effective groups and teams. Explain why.
Format your handout according to APA guidelines.

Cite 3 peer-reviewed or scholarly sources plus others similar references to support your handout.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
