Enhancing Workgroup Performance.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on enhancing workgroup performance in human resource development (HRD). "Formation of Cross-Cultural Global Teams: Making Informed Choices on Team Composition" (Robert L. Dilworth) describes how a mixed class of U.S. and international students identified their cultural and learning styles and learned to form effective diverse teams. In "Current Status of Diversity Initiatives in Selected Multinational Corporations" (Rose Mary Wentling, Nilda Palma-Rivas), eight diversity managers describe the planning, implementation, evaluation, success factors, and barriers involved in their diversity initiatives. "An Empirical Study of the Relationship between Team Process Interventions and Double-Loop Learning" (Laurel H. Jeris) presents evidence that process interventions emphasizing assumptions surfacing, dialog, and reflection helped teams master double-loop learning. In "Goal Condition and Work Group Effectiveness: The Use of Group and Individual Goals for Work Groups Performing Interdependent Tasks" (Mary J. Finegan), a study found that workgroup effectiveness did not differ regardless of whether groups were given individual goals, group goals, or the two in conjunction. (KC)
