S‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍elf-select into groups of three (3), read and discuss the case found at the end of David Boje’s chapter “Making a Horse Out of a Camel”. You are, as group members, collectively in the role of the Director, which means you should consider yourselves to be “in” the case scenario. As Boje suggests, appoint one member to serve as the process leader of the group and the remaining members focus on the content. Complete the following: Reach agreement as a group on a one-sentence definition of the underlying problem. Be sure it is a problem and not a symptom. Decide on whether or not a creative problem solving approach is required and explain the rationale behind your decision. Develop a list of alternative solutions for the Director, and describe if you acted as a cohesive group or as individuals. As a group converge on the best three (3) solutions to the problem definition you agreed upon. After discussion, choose the best solution. Include who should be involved in making the decision that solves the problem. Just the Director? Ev‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍eryone? Just the Director and the staff? Explain why. Develop an implementation plan and the action steps the Director should take to get the solution implemented. Include the amount of involvement of you (the Director), as well as the subordinates. Outline and describe potential negative consequences and pitfalls of your plan. Finally, once steps 1-7 are complete, consider your group’s problem definition, solution, and action plan in terms of the types of games Boje has outlined throughout the chapter. What games, if any, did your group fall for? Explain why. Identify which group member served as process leader. Expectations: While this is not a research-based assignment, all outside information and perspective you bring into the assignment must meet the following requirements: References and credible sources cannot come from Wikipedia or any other open content websites. Use 6th edition APA form and style and the provided writing template. The book to be used is Readings in Managerial Psychology, Leavitt, Pondy & Boje, ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍. Thank you!!
