This week’s materials emphasize the complexity surrounding processes designed to maximize team efficiency and performance. For your initial post to this discussion forum, begin by describing how the impact of conflict on teams may be “good, bad, or ugly” and how conflict in some cases may be necessary to bring about desired outcomes. Then illustrate your position regarding at least one of these circumstances (conflict is good, bad, ugly, and/or necessary) by citing an example from a popular or academic source (i.e., an academic journal, popular or trade magazine, newspaper, broadcast, internet, etc.).
