Case study brief: Wetlaufer, S. (1994), The team that wasn’t, Harvard Business Review, November – December, pp. 1 – 4. Students must answer the question posed in the case study: “Why doesn’t this team work?” Students will succeed in answering the brief if they: identify a major problem (problems) presented in the case study  discuss reasons for this problem (or these problems). Use relevant theories where appropriate. Discuss possible solutions to this problem (or these problems). Use relevant theories where appropriate. NB: students must note that it will not suffice to answer the question of why the team does not work by only identifying or pointing to (describing) apparent issues. Your analysis should explain why these issues are problematic and how can they be rectified (solutions). a) in the Introduction (up to 250 words) – introduce the brief and how it is tackled in the report. Tip: a report introduction should include a brief overview 6  of identified challenges, the argumentation provided under each heading, as well as conclusive thoughts). b) in the Body of Report (under Headings that students create) (up to 650 words) – analyse and evaluate the task at hand. Tip: think carefully about the headings because they define the structure of your argumentation; Students have freedom in how they organise their analysis. Headings could be based around challenges, or stakeholders, or solutions, or anything else that students find useful to succeed in identifying the real problem(s) behind teamwork failure and the subsequent solutions. d) in the Conclusion (up to 100 words) – summarise the key points identified in the report. Tip: conclusion contains no new information. It summarises student insights/recommendations and investigations performed in the body of the report. e) in the Reference List (is not included in the word count) – accurately and consistently cite all references mentioned within the text and make sure that citations in the Reference List are cited in the text of the Report.

The company is witnessing flattening sales and earnings and it is prime requirement to provide needed assistance to Jack De
y to handle the situation. Since the beginning Eric found Randy to be a difficult person as his negativism is not allowing others to come forward.

There are other different members like Maureen Turner from design division who stands for artists recognition, Ray Lapie
e who has more than 35 years of experience in manufacturing, Carl Simmons from distribution who has command over delivery system. There are several problems which are causing disruption in team balance and stopping them to work collectively towards the goal. Eric tried to persuade Randy to behave in acceptable fashion but Despite Eric’s intervention the other team members found to be unsupportive towards change regarding Randy’s behaviour.
The case will be dealt by analysing the problems in-depth and finding the reasons behind them. This will help in evaluating problems from different dimensions and perspectives which will be useful in reaching recommendations. Finally the discussion will be concluded.
