A group’s success is a reflection of individual skills, roles, communication styles, culture, and power. Setting clear and measurable goals is essential to the success of a group. A group is effective when it has a clear sense of where it is going. The cohesiveness of a group drives it toward its goals.
Effective organizations pay special attention to how members work together, which roles they fill and whether members are contributing equally. Through group process observation and analysis, problems can be identified before they escalate, hopefully alleviating the need for a major overhaul as the project progresses.
