Right off the assembly line
Group Discussion is a very important round in any selection process, be it for an MBA course, campus recruitment or for any graduate/post graduate degree. The selection committee conducts GD to gauge whether the candidate has certain personality traits and/or skills that it desires in its members. Few suggestions from Mr. Vineet Patawari - PGDM (IIM Indore), ACA, B.Com (H), founder CEO of www.fireup.co.in tells you how you can do this more effectively.

Traits /or skills that the panel members search in a candidate:

• Ability to work in a team
• Communication skills
• Leadership skills
• Reasoning ability
• Imitativeness
• Assertiveness
• Ability to think differently.
• Flexibility
• Ability to think and act independently
• Ability to convince others

Normally groups of 8-10 candidates are formed into a leaderless group, and are given a specific situation to analyze and discuss within a given time limit. The group may be given a Case Study and asked to come out with a solution for a problem. The group may be given a topic and asked to discuss on the same. A panel will observe the proceedings and evaluate the members of the group.
