The Dunbar Cadre. Interim Report, January, 1971. Final Report, March, 1972.
This research, developed by the Ford Training and Placement Program, observed a cadre or work group as a miniature replication of the social system of a school. The interim report presents the conceptual framework of group development and recording techniques used for analysis. The conceptual framework emphasized three phases of group development: group origin, the formative phase, and the intermediate phase. Results of the analysis are presented in tabular form with accompanying interpretive remarks. The final report discusses four additional phases of the conceptual framework: revision, second intermediate, maturation, and termination. An analysis of the non-participant observer indicates the form and frequency of elements of each dimension, followed by some interpretations of time patterns. The final section presents a summary of findings and an evaluation of the group's development. (Related document is SP 005 967.) (MJM)
