The intergroup and institutional events:
An overview of designs, foci, structures, and functions
Stan De Loach, Ph.D.
Staff's approach to its roles and attitudes determines whether conference members are in fact presented with learning opportunities focused on intergroup and institutional behaviors and processes. Staff's approach to the nature of these events is manifest in the protocols and procedures instituted by the director and in the staff's collective management of its roles and its own intragroup, intergroup, and institutional dynamics.
Several staffing innovations recently
introduced are examined. Case examples are used to illustrate key
points. A lexicon defining key words with meanings specific to the
setting of the intergroup and institutional events is included.
