I am still wondering if this applies to any team, but I do know that it is good to know how the group’s performance is influenced by the individuals within the group. It seems like we are not practicing the way we should be if we all get along.
Case study solution – root cause analysis can also be done on a scenario and I’ve been surprised by how effective that is. A scenario helps everyone within the group come up with the real solutions to the problem. The scenarios are used as the basis for the group’s analysis.
For example, what is the best way to resolve a conflict within the group? What will change before the event? By doing this, the solutions will be determined and once the group knows how to resolve the conflict, they will be able to apply the solutions in the future.
Let’s take an example of a scenario that was introduced to me. My colleague informed me that he had made some edits to a software project. As it turned out, one person had edited another’s work and it became part of the final product. This seemed to be a clear case for an error in judgment.
Unfortunately, there were other team members that saw only what the person who made the edit had seen. They didn’t recognize that the edits had created a conflict. Someone in the team realized the conflict and started the review process.
The root cause analysis performed by the team suggested that the editing incident was not an error in judgment, but rather it was an attempt to perform work outside of the scope of the project. Once the reviewers saw what actually happened, they were able to perform their review process on their own. Their review showed that the edits were a mistake and the problem wasn’t the editing itself. The root cause analysis helped solve the conflict by revealing that the entire project was flawed and needed to be redesigned.
When everyone on the team gets this message, they will be able to use the root cause analysis to help improve their work and decrease conflicts in the future. As they do this, the team will be more efficient and the project will be successful.
The good news is that when everyone comes up with solutions to the same problem, the team can use a case study solution to uncover the truth. When everyone is focused on the end result of the project, they will be more likely to analyze the problem carefully. Because of this, they will also be more likely to communicate effectively to fix problems.
I think there is a benefit to this method of learning because it forces each team member to look deeper into the problem. The team becomes more aware of what they need to change and they will be better able to communicate this to the project manager. The project manager will be able to evaluate the root cause analysis for the group and the project and can then help implement the changes needed to ensure the project is successful.
A case study solution is much better than a scenario because it provides a structure that makes sense. A scenario can be written in one of two ways. Either it has a happy ending where everything is perfect and everyone has their parts under control or the situation has ended in a big failure with no one winning.
With a scenario, you don’t know if it will end in a good ending. You don’t know if the characters will have a happy ending or if they will all be miserable. So, it forces the author to try to cover all the bases and give a simple structure that makes sense to the end results.
