Honesty: keep everyone informed of your progress; communicate needs or struggles
Hard work: apply all effort to completion; absolute participation every step of the way
F. Desirable Team Behaviors and Consequences for Noncompliance
Commitment, fully participating so all deadlines are met and work is shared equally.
Open communication, so members can ensure all tasks are completed and everyone is aware of what others are doing
Delegation, to ensure multiple portions are being worked to ensure each task is covered
H. Team Conflict Management Plan
The team will address all conflicts directly with the individual team member(s) and collaboratively resolve the issue. Each team member is obligated to meet their assigned commitment by the deadline. Depending on the issue or level of conflict, team members will be given two chances before the issue escalated to the professor. Team members will conduct themselves as adults and when critiqued by others, learn from the critique and move on. Everyone shall put in the same amount of effort no matter the tasks, and all opinions shall be heard out whether it is used or not.
I. Statement of Team Decision Protocol
Voting process will be used and an agreement by majority of members will decide how things proceed for regular and emergency situations. Bigger decisions will be narrowed down to two options that will be decided upon by the group.
J. Encouragement of Teamwork
Communication is key. We will keep in contact as much as our schedules allow to ensure that no one person is lacking or struggling with the project. Each member will have some form of responsibility that will be as equal and fair as possible in comparison to every other member’s responsibility with the project. This will promote participation and unity of effort for the project.
K. Team Self-Assessment Approach and Methodology
The team will assess and track progress with the use of the project plan suggested start and completion dates. If threat of possible missed milestone by individual mistakes, the other team members will adjust to make sure the void will be filled in a timely manner to stay on schedule or adjust dates of portions requiring more time. All tasks will be assigned a primary and secondary person. Task assignment can be adjusted if necessary throughout the project at assignee’s request to achieve optimal teamwork and performance.
