Team Dynamics. Although originally an Eastern concept, team culture has slowly been integrated into the culture of the American workplace. As we learned this week, there are several types of teams that one can be a part of: self-managed work team (S.M.W.T.), manager-led teams, cross-functional teams, project teams, virtual teams and more. Based on your reading this week, consider the following:
Using your previous experience as a team member, describe a team experience that lacked cohesion and/or was inefficient. After reviewing the components of team composition (i.e., personality, cognitive abilities, diversity, size), that are listed in your course text, describe how the components correlated to the challenges your team faced. Additionally, describe one of your positive team experiences and how these components were essential to the success of your team.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
