I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Managing Group Dynamics. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Group work is a creative, healthy, and productive experience, performed based on open agreements, explicitly practised and clearly attained, about the task and goal of the group, responsibilities, rights of members (Greenberg 2000). Therefore, in order to address the premises of this paper various literature on managing organisational behaviour and group dynamics are used.  . . . .
It is evident that group situations evolve as an outcome of the energy produced by devotion and motivation divergences in the group. Exploring and understanding the adjustment in situations is an essential capability of group work practice (Mullins 2005). By observing the fluctuation in situation and determining the patterns and premises of behaviour, interaction, and relationship, it is possible to discern what needs or demands exist in the group at any specified time, and allow intervention to arise out of the given group condition (Robbins 2004).  . . . . .
Tuckman, Garland, and his associates along with several scholars assume a sequential or linear progression in group development. This academic and systematic demarcation of group dynamics can be unknown to the experience of several novice group members as they analyse the evident disorder and uncertainty of their own groups (Bloisi 2003). Groups obviously do not merely progress in sequence through orderly stages, but also move forwards, sideways, and backwards (Linstead & Lilley 2004). Each group diverges in the amount of time it uses in a given phase of development and some groups can never advance beyond a particular phase. .
The three-stage design of Schutz makes progress towards enabling retrograde and lateral growth. Schutz assumes three sequential stages but he does promote the concept of spiralling and circularity. In simpler terms, a group can repeat and reverse cycles and can progress by actually going back through phases and even by repeating the same actions (Benson 2001). .
