Case Studies for Teaching Organizational Communication.
Rogers, Donald P.
The simulation of real world problems in an organizational communication classroom by presenting students with case material for analysis, investigation, and discussion has the advantages of being convenient and of allowing students to apply the facts, concepts, and techniques they have learned. This paper contains a variety of cases which provide occasions for observing the many factors involved in group operation, for example, need satisfaction, need frustration, defensiveness, political behavior, economic maneuvering, social interaction, rejection, alienation, pressure, power, and status effects. Five cases are described for each of the three categories of social groups, economic groups, and political groups. (JM)
