Team Building OD Interventions and Outcomes in a Public School.
Patterson, Wade N.; DeVille, Anthony P.
This paper describes a study of an organization development intervention with an eight-person teaching-support-administrative team in a suburban elementary school. Data for the study were gathered through observation by two participant-observers, through interviews with all eight direct participants in the team-building project, and through a sample of other staff members, parents, and students from the school. Interviews conducted one month after departure of the external consultant revealed that the team showed improvement in task orientation, communication, time utilization, conflict management, collaboration, openness, and personal and professional relationships. A second set of interviews conducted 11 months after the consultation ended found equivalent or improved results on 11 of the 15 outcomes noted in the first interviews. (Author/JG)
