Overhead Reduction Task Force, The
A middle manager is about to meet with his boss to discuss her request that he head up a task force to determine how overhead can be reduced by 20%. He must decide what to address in that meeting and how the task force should be launched and led. The focus is on team leadership at four stages in a team's life cycle: 1) preparation, 2) initial meeting, 3) mid-course consultation, and 4) post-performance debriefing. A rewritten version of an earlier case.
