TerraCog Global Positioning Systems: Conflict and Communication on Project Aerial


Executive Summary


This discussion of the TerraCog Global Positioning Systems: Conflict and

Communication on Project Aerial briefcase focuses on the reasons why the project group is

unable to come together and make a “go/no-go” decision on Aerial.  The five areas that are

specifically examined for the root of the group's failure include group goals and objectives vs.

individual goals and objectives; group structure; group conflict and conflict management;

decision making and problem-solving in groups; and project/team leadership.  As the case study

develops, the need for clear group goals and objectives becomes even more important, and

without them the group cannot pull together to make a decision.  The group needs a strong

leader, which they do not have, to pull the team together and form a common goal.

Group Goals and Objectives vs. Individual Goals and Objectives


Problem Identification

Each member of the Aerial Pre-Launch Meeting group has their own individual career

goals and objectives that conflict directly with the goals and objective of the group.  Carl Larson

and Frank LaFasto found “a clear and elevated goal” to be the top attribute of how and why

effective groups develop (Engleberg & Wynn, 2013). Because each team member has their own

individual goals and objectives, and the group does not have a clear goal, the group is unable to

come to a consensus on the right path forward for Aerial.
