Abstract:
Communication is widely recognised in the literature as being important to modern management. In the case of the BRC project, communication was often an issue, and was relatively poor for the author’s project team. This paper analyses the role of communication in team building and group dynamics, in order to understand how communication can be improved in the future in order to ensure future project success. The results of the analysis imply that communication is a major issue for teams, with good communication being vital to ensure team performance in a project environment, whilst poor communication can create a number of issues, all of which can lead to poor levels of project performance and significant conflict in a project team.

Introduction:

This academic paper will analyse the role of communication in team building and the creation of positive group dynamics. This topic has been chosen due to the nature of the consulting project as a team based exercise; and the important role that communication, team building and group dynamics played in the creation of the project team. The group project undertaken was significant both in its scope and complexity, which in turn created issues for the project team, all of which had not participated in such a large research project before. As a result of this, the project members initially found it difficult to obtain much traction, with relatively poor team performance and unhelpful group dynamics in the early phase of the project. As a result of this, early performance levels were not...
