Group Problem Solving Strategies

 Groups that work

Vroom, V. H. & Yetton, P.W. (1973) Leadership and Decision Making University of Pittsburgh Press

CII "You share the problem with your subordinates as a group, obtaining their collective ideas and suggestions. then you make the decision, which may or may not reflect your subordinates' influence."

GII "You share the problem with your subordinates as a group. Together you generate and evaluate alternatives and attempt to reach agreement (consensus) on a solution. Your role is much like that of chairman (sic). You do not try to influence the group to adopt "your" solution, and you are willing to accept and implement any solution which has the support of the group."
