Transcript

  • 1. A Comparative Study of Facilitator Competencies in a Sample of U.S. and S. Korean Facilitators
    Judith A. Kolb, Penn State
    Hong Min Kim, Penn State
    JiHoon Song, Oklahoma State
    AHRD Conference 2/27/10 Knoxville
  • 2. +
    Rationale for Study
    • Extend Kolb, Jin, & Song (2008) study of facilitator competencies to non-U.S. sample
    • 3. Address limitation and suggestion for future research from that study—”examine application of this model to other cultures” (p. 131)
    • 4. Kolb, J. A., Jin, S., & Song, J. H. (2008). A model of small group facilitator competencies. Performance Improvement Quarterly, 21(2), 119-133.

    Facilitator Definition
    A person who remains neutral in the actual decision (s) of the group but who assumes the responsibility for managing the group’s process while it is attempting to solve a problem or reach a decision
  • 5. +
    Research Question
    What similarities and differences exist between scores and rankings collected from a sample of facilitators working in South Korea and scores and rankings reported by Kolb et al. (2008)?
  • 6. +
    Sample & Analysis
    • Sample
    -40 U.S. Facilitators (2008)
    -57 Korean Facilitators (2009)
    • Analysis
    -Comparison of competency mean scores and rankings
    -Interdependent t-tests
    -Spearman’s rank correlation
  • 7. +
    Results: Overview
    • Comparison in mean score (t-tests)
    -No significant differences in 15 competencies
    -Significant differences in 8 competencies
    • Correlation in rank (Spearman’s rho)
    -ρ (rho)=.61 (p<.01) -Significant correlation in rank between the two data sets
  • 8. +

    Implications for Research
    • Similar patterns could be considered as evidence of the facilitator competency model’s validity
    • 13. Kolb et al.’s (2008) belief that listening would be highly ranked in another culture was supported
    • 14. Need to analyze qualitative data from this study that will give depth to findings reported here
    • 15. Further studies needed to improve the validity of the facilitator competency model
