Assume you have recently been assigned to lead a six-person team working on a new health care product that could revolutionize the treatment of diabetes. This product would allow glucose readings to be taken without any needles or skin pricks. Obviously, if the product is successful, you and the rest of the team stand to earn bonuses, promotions, and industry recognition. You are being asked to lead the team because under the former leader, the project team missed several critical deadlines, and costs have spiraled out of control.
The team all works out of an office in Maryland. The team is made up of the following people:
John, a 43-year-old African American, man, born in Bowie, Maryland
Julie, a 51-year-old Chinese-American woman, born in the District of Columbia
Jinsoo, a 27-year-old South Korean man who immigrated from Seoul
Tom, a 63-year-old white American, born in Los Angeles, California, who recently moved to Maryland
Darius, a 32-year-old Iranian man whose parents brought him to the United States when he was six years old
Harpreet, a 30-year-old Indian woman who immigrated 10 years ago
Darius and Harpreet joined the team three months ago. The rest of the team has been together for three years.
The new product is due to be delivered for beta testing six months from today. Today, your first day on the job, you have spent the entire day talking to each team member separately. Here is what you have discovered so far today:
Darius and Tom have been in conflict for several weeks over how to approach the design of a critical piece of the product.
John and Julie are so disillusioned that they are job hunting, but each has unique skills that you do not wish to lose.
Jinsoo tends to isolate himself when there is conflict, which decreases his productivity.
Tom believes that the rest of the team is cutting him out of the picture because of his age and lack of interest in using Google to create workspaces where everyone can brainstorm. Tom would rather just talk about his ideas.
You were also briefed by the general manager, who shared that the former leader had been fired due to unethical practices such as taking bribes from vendors. However, the team members didnt know that and really liked the former leader; they are angry that he is gone.
Using your knew knowledge of multicultural teams and communication, the change process, decision making, and ethics, write an action plan of about 5 pages to get this team back on track. This paper should be supported by your readings and must provide specific steps based on this knowledge. Cite sources, etc. Remember-whenever you write a paper in a course, your task is to show that you understand the material you are learning, that you can apply it to specific situations, and that you can think critically and creatively in new situations.
The specific requirements of the assignment are addressed sufficiently. All expectations of the assigned task are fulfilled and the content is substantive. Substantive content sufficiently addresses the following elements:
An assessment of the situation. What is happening, and why?
An identification of the general options for addressing the situation. What are the different approaches for dealing with the problem?
Your decision on which option you will follow and why. What is your preferred solution, and why will it work?
A description of the specific steps you will take. How, exactly, will you implement your solution?
Your expectation for the outcomes of those steps. What do you expect will happen if your solution is successful?
Make specific reference to multicultural teams, communication, the change process, decision making, and ethics.
