Suckers or Saviours The Role of Consistent Contributors in Groups case solution
Unless some people within the organization take considerable personal dangers that catalyze successful collective action organizations cannot make substantial increases. The writers reveal that these people – whom they call ‘Consistent Subscribers’ – can alter other group members’ awareness by modeling behaviour that is combined, thus raising the opportunities for added co-operation. These people, they clarify, consistently give, regardless of others’ options. They describe their research findings, which show that qualifying subscribers that are consistent as ‘suckers’ is fallacious and misleading: really, their information leads them to consider that consistent subscribers are really ‘saviors’ than suckers. A serious challenge for supervisors is the formation of circumstances that support the emergence and recognition of Consistent Subscribers and encourage.
