Subject: Business / Management
leader-member Exchange Model

You have been invited by the human resources manager of a medium-sized company to prepare a “report” on “In Groups and Out Groups.” The report will be distributed to departmental VPs and directors.

In the report you should:

1.Introduce the concepts of In and Out groups.

2.Describe a situation where you (or someone you know) were a member of the “In group” and another situation where you (or someone you know) were a member of the “Out group.” This should be an example from your own business experience.

3.Analyze and explain the major differences between the two situations.

4.Explain how having an in-group and an out-group affected the groups and the organization.

5.To what extent was membership in either the in-group or the out-group based on task related performance factors? What non-task related factors entered into the decision?

6.Describe the implications for leadership and a leader’s relationship with followers.
