Relation of Group Performance to Age

...570 Academy of Management Journal September THE RELATION OF GROUP PERFORMANCE TO THE AGE OF MEMBERS IN HOMOGENEOUS GROUPS ROSS A. WEBBER University of Pennsylvania Comparison of individual and group problem solving has a long history. From early works (24, 29) to later reviews (4, 20), group performance is seen to possess certain advantages over individual performance. Many researchers have explored the conditions (1, 7), tasks (5, 6), and group composition (11, 12, 13, 16, 18, 22, 23, 26) affecting these advantages. Others have pointed out the disadvantages and dangers (2, 9, 10, 20, 25, 27). Focus of This Research This project was designed to examine an unexplored aspect of group performance: the effect of the age of members of homogeneous groups. Origins of this study lie in two popular observations on current young people: First, they are less competitive and more cooperative than earlier generations ( 3 ) ; second, business students particularly are group oriented— perhaps too much so to suit some employers (14). Several studies and reports (8, 15) suggest that cooperative behavior in groups is associated with more effective performance. Homogeneous groups composed of persons of different ages, however, may exhibit different performance. Four hundred individuals and 80 five-person groups completed two 25item vocabulary synonym exercises. The individuals were drawn frofn management development programs and university classes and were balanced as follows: 1. 2. 3....

Financial Performance Measurement of Sbi Groups – an Empirical Study

...Financial Performance Measurement of SBI Groups – An Empirical Study (Synopsis) Prasanta Saha Purash-Kanpur Haridas Nandi Mahavidyalaya, Howrah Introduction: Why you choose SBI? You have to clarify it in a paragraph. The Imperial Bank was established in 1921 by amalgamation of three presidency banks – the Bank of Bengal, the Bank of Bombay and the Bank of Madras under a special legislation. These presidency banks were created as a charter to deal in bill of exchange payable in British India and were an integral part of Indian treasury. The Imperial Bank acted as a banker of the government until the establishment of Reserve Bank of India in 1935. State Bank of India was formed on July 1, 1955 by nationalizing the Imperial Bank under the State Bank of India Act, 1955 which was passed in parliament on May 8, 1955. The main objective of nationalization was not only extending banking facilities to rural and semi-urban areas in the newly formed independent India but also to promote agricultural finance and help the government to pursue the board economic policies. Initially 60% stake in SBI was taken over by the Reserve Bank of India but the controlling interest has been transferred to the Government of India in 2008 to remove any conflict of interest as it is the country's banking regulatory authority. The State Bank Group, with a network of 18,266 branches including 4,724 branches of its five Associate Banks, dominates the banking industry in India. The market......

...Attitude Survey Brenda Brown, PSY/475 June 17, 2013 Dr. Jacqueline Grimmett Attitude Survey Surveys, such as attitude survey require “data to analyze test hypotheses, and answer questions but the data and the source for the data must be appropriate for the attitude survey. The source of information or the manner in which data are accumulating could well make a big difference in the severity and effectiveness of this attitude survey about psychological tests and measurements class” (Hogan, 2007, p. 422). The final step of this attitude survey is the specific instructions for administering, scoring, and interpreting the attitude survey. Attitude survey must consist of short or brief questions and do not include embarrassing or personal questions. He or she made sure the survey consist of one and half page. Students do not like long surveys. “A well-designed student’s attitude survey will tell administrator what students think about his or her class and the online environment” (Likert, 1932, p. 140). Something that seems insignificant, like some members of the learning teams not participating or the some member’s waiting until the last minute can cause dissatisfaction that affects productivity and morale of the group. A comprehensive, confidential attitude survey gives students a safe place to voice their concerns and gives administers a wealth of knowledge to create a better guidelines. The first steps in creating an attitude survey......

...A Survey on Energy Efficient Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks Muhammad Asad Department of Computer Science COMSATS INSTITUTE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, WAH CANT Abstract: To tackle the limited life-time issue of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is a very key research domain in order to design, development and implementation of energy effective algorithms. So, the major concern of researcher is energy efficiency in wireless sensor networks. WSNs acknowledged magnificent consideration from both industry and academic because of assure numerous latent applications in military and civilian areas. WSN consists of sensor nodes sensing the data, communication capabilities and data processing. Network can be deployed in the area of interest and collaborate to complete a task. WSN has multiple exclusive characteristics, such as memory constraints, computation, stern power, asymmetric data transmission, higher unreliability of sensor nodes and denser node deployment and presents several new challenges for the ultimate application and development of WSNs. In exacting, sensor nodes are operates without attendance and battery powered for a long period of time. In order to recharge or change these batteries of sensor nodes are quite difficult or impossible in most of the cases. In this regard, energy efficient routing protocols in wireless sensor networks are essential for exceeding the network lifetime of sensors.

Why Microsoft's Measurement System Led to Problems with Group Performance

... Closing Case WHY MICROSOFT'S MEASUREMENT SYSTEM LED TO PROBLEMS WITH GROUP PERFORMANCE From the beginning, Microsoft organized its software engineers into small work groups and .teams so that team members could cooperate, and learn from and help each other, and so speed the develppment of innovative}softwme. Each team works on a subset of the thousands of programs that together make up its Windows operating system and applications software that is loaded on over 90 percent of PCs today. In the past, much of Microsoft's reward system was based on team performance; employees of successful teams that quickly developed innovative software received valuable stock options and other benefits. Microsoft's team-based reward system encouraged team members to work together intensively and cooperate to meet team goals. At the same time, the contributions of exceptional team members were recognized; these individuals received re- wards such as promotion to become the managers or leaders of new teams as the company grew. This reward system resulted in a continuous series of improved Windows operating and applica- tions software such as Windows XP, Vista, 7 and its Office and Internet Explorer suites. Back in 2006, however, Microsoft ran into serious problems with the development of Vista, its last operating system, which had been schedule to come out in the summer of 2006. Unforeseen delays put the project six month behind schedule, however, and when it was eventually launched in...

Effects of Informal Group in Organizational Performance

...THE FORMAL EFFECTS OF INFORMAL GROUPS IN AN ORGANIZATION We know that groups are vital to the understanding of organizational behavior because they are the building blocks of the larger organization. In today’s organization, where productivity and efficiency demand collaboration within and across functional, physical and hierarchical boundaries, collaboration in employee networks has become critical to innovation, and to both individual and company performance. The heavy emphasis on teams and group decision making in today’s organizations only increase the importance of understanding teams and groups for managers. As we have discussed in our class, groups are usually divided into formal and informal groups. Formal group is one deliberately formed by the organization to accomplish specific task and achieve goals. And most managers would put so much emphasis on the creation, maintenance and control of formal structure in getting things done to achieve organizational objectives. According to Parker and Cross (2004), most managers have little understanding of how their employees actually interact to get work done. In fact, organizational charts fail to reveal the often hidden social networks that truly drive or hinder an individual’s performance. Mullins (2010) articulates that informal groups are very powerful social net works which are constructed in response to and through actions of their members. Mullins (2010) further articulates that managers and supervisors......

...Graham and Campbell Harvey, Duke University* e recently conducted a comprehensive survey that analyzed the current practice of corporate finance, with particular focus on the areas of capital budgeting and capital structure. The survey results enabled us to identify aspects of corporate practice that are consistent with finance theory, as well as aspects that are hard to reconcile with what we teach in our business schools today. In presenting these results, we hope that some practitioners will find it worthwhile to observe how other companies operate and perhaps modify their own practices. It may also be useful for finance academics to consider differences between theory and practice as a reason to revisit the theory. We solicited responses from approximately 4,440 companies and received 392 completed surveys, representing a wide variety of firms and industries.1 The survey contained nearly 100 questions and explored both capital budgeting and capital structure decisions in depth. The responses to these questions enabled us to explore whether and how these corporate policies are interrelated. For example, we investigated whether companies that made more aggressive use of debt financing also tended to use more sophisticated capital budgeting techniques, perhaps because of their greater need for discipline and precision in the corporate investment process. More generally, the design of our survey allowed for a richer understanding of corporate decision-making by analyzing......

Group Communication Competencies Survey and Summary

...Group Communication Competencies Survey And Summary Roger Estes SOC/110 June 10, 2016 Steve Emerson Group Communication Competencies Summary After completing the group communication competencies survey I found that I answered all questions as extremely important or very important, except question six. I feel that to be a strong group organizer you will need to maintain your team by holding their attention and encouraging them all to participate. Question Six “Influence group members to change their attitudes and behavior” was question six. For this question I think that dependent on the meeting content that you may or may not want to change your group member’s attitudes and behaviors. If your meeting is about getting feedback of why something is not working in your company, you would not want to force your opinions on them to get them to change their attitude toward a subject, instead you would want to figure out why they feel the way they do. The Rest Of The Survey Questions Looking over all the other questions I found that they were all extremely important or very important in my opinion. In my company I have participated on many teams and projects and have seen strong group leaders and weak group leaders. Teams that have a strong group lead generally get more accomplished and have a better understanding of problems that it focused to solve due to the group generally getting feedback from all members and then coming together to solve the problem as a team.......

...Survey Paper Research and Evaluation I Survey Paper This is the problem statement that is being addressed. Why do employers insist on specifying ethnic background to non Hispanic? The survey will ask questions that normally one cannot ask the employer or the interviewer. The problem is that there has been a trend with applications to single out Hispanic/Latino ethnicity. There was a time where the employer would voluntary provide the option to answer the ethnicity background but now it is nearly impossible to find an application that does not state the several ethnic choices to set parameters of the words of “Non-Hispanic” to be checked of such as White (Non-Hispanic) Native American (Non-Hispanic) African American (Non-Hispanic) Asian (Non-Hispanic) Other (Non-Hispanic) Hispanic (Anyone who's ethnic background stems from any of the Latin American, Central American, or South American Countries, Or who's parents share this ethnicity.). This research addresses a concern of why do most employers find it important to whether request the information if one is either of Hispanic background? Employers indicate the information is voluntary and is not to be taken into consideration during a hiring process but through experience it is found otherwise. For example the Internet online application provided by the employer requests that the question of identifying...
