Abstract or Description

The purpose of this paper is to identify some critical dimensions in specifying a model of group performance" The focus is not, on presenting the model of effective group performance because there is unlikely to be a model which is generalizable to different criteria and different types of groups. Rather, our interest is in discussing some of the conditions for developing models of group performance. A basic assumption in our work on groups is that one must build models of performance for a specific criterion in a specific type of group. If this is true, the best one can do in a general discussion is to indicate the processes necessary for developing models of group performance
