Effective teams have a proper balance of conformity and deviance. Managers are tasked with ensuring a proper balance that results in high team performance, and yields needed improvements and changes from synergy. This assignment evaluates the team management concept of encouraging a balance of conformity and deviance.

Remember: This assignment and all assignments in this course have a management, not leadership focus. There is a distinct difference between management and leadership. Discuss management, not leadership. The Contemporary Management text only provides basic topical information. As a research-intensive doctoral course, you will need to research current scholarly literature. There is no assignment in this course that can be completed by relying on the text alone.
