After the team activity of Problem 6, answer the following individually:
a. Describe the team interactions you observed as your team worked on Problem 6. Include an explanation of whether you identified elements of team development as outlined in Table 3.1.
b. From the descriptions in Table 3.2 and from lifelong experience with yourself, identify which type of responder you tend to be. Did you function that way during your brief team effort with Problem 6?
c. What type of responder (from Table 3.2) did each of your team members appear to be?
Data From Question 6
Do the following problem as teams (organized in class or outside of class, depending on your instructor's preference):
Suppose that you work for a large power company. One of your company's holdings is a small coal-fired power plant near an old coal mine that provided fuel for the plant. The plant is not currently in operation due to a long history of fires and cave-ins that have caused a number of deaths and led to closure of the mine. However, a modern (and safe) coal mine is in operation approximately 100 miles away. Existing railroad tracks cover only 30 miles of the distance between the plant and the operational mine.
a. Based on the above information, propose at least three possible problem definitions. Which do you feel is most appropriate?
b. Propose four possible strategies to put the power plant in operation.
c. For each strategy, list 3-5 items of information that would be needed in order to evaluate the merits of that strategy.
d. Suppose that you are a manager employed by the power company, and that you have been given responsibility for the problem described above. Organize a hypothetical group of five people to address this problem and propose a plan for its solution. Specify the roles that these individuals might fulfill as part of the group. What types of individuals (see Table 3.2) would be best suited to these roles?
