Resumo Português:Em um mundo onde a tecnologia modifica cada detalhe de nossa sociedade em uma velocidade cada vez maior, é preocupante que a forma como desenvolvemos nossos líderes esteja melhorando tão devagar. Apesar de inúmeros estudos mostrarem que a liderança é um dos fatores que mais influenciam o sucesso de projetos e de mais de U$ 14 bilhões serem gastos anualmente com desenvolvimento de liderança, mais da metade das organizações acredita que não o esteja fazendo de forma eficaz. Uma das metodologias mais eficientes para o desenvolvimento de liderança dentro das organizações é a Aprendizagem Experiencial, proposta por David Kolb, mas ainda se observa pouca padronização no modo como ela é utilizada, com diversas abordagens diferentes e resultados muito variados. Por esta razão, este estudo propõe um modelo padronizado para o uso de dinâmicas de grupo como um meio para ajudar alunos de tecnologia a praticar habilidades de liderança. Um primeiro piloto foi executado com resultados e feedback bastante positivos, que indicam o potencial de sua aplicação para outras habilidades e contextos.
In a world where technology is changing every single detail of our societies, schools, and organizations in a skyrocketing speed, it is worrying that the way we develop our leaders is improving so slowly. With numerous studies showing that leadership is one of the factors that impact the most on software projects’ success, it is worrying that more than $14B are spent yearly with leadership development and, still, most organizations believe they are not being effective. One of the most efficient methodologies for leadership development inside companies is the Experiential Learning from David Kolb, but it still has some problems in gaining traction inside universities due to their difficulty of simulating practical experiences. Many different approaches have been tried with various results and little standardization is perceived on the way they are used. For this reason, this study proposes a framework for using group activities as a means to help technology students practice leadership skills. A first pilot was executed with pleasant results and feedback from students, but more experiments are necessary to ensure its application for other skills and contexts.
