Summary & Implications for Managers

Performance:

  • Structural factors show a relationship to performance.
  • There is a positive relationship between role perception and an employee’s performance evaluation.
  • Norms control group member behavior by establishing standards of right and wrong.
  • Status inequities create frustration and can adversely influence productivity.
  • The impact of size on a group’s performance depends upon the type of task in which the group is engaged.

Satisfaction:

  • Most people prefer to communicate with others at their own status level or a higher one.
  • Large groups are associated with lower satisfaction.
