Assignment 1: Jury and Work Group Decision Making
You must gain an insight into how a group’s decision-making process that works in juries can also work in small-group decision making in the human services field. Specific learning will occur when comparing the similarities and differences between jury decision making and organizational decision making in groups.
In this assignment, you will conduct a research on professional literature using the Argosy University online library resources and the Internet to address how the jury’s decision-making process is both similar to and different from the group’s decision-making process in the human services field. The literature may include relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov).
In a minimum of 400 words, respond to the following:
- Discuss how the jury’s decision-making process is related to group decision making in human services, such as a governing board of an organization making a decision about an infraction by one of the clinicians.
- Compare and contrast the jury’s decision-making process with the group’s decision-making process of the governing board of an agency.
