Module 3 - SLP
TEAM NORMS AND PROCEDURES
In the Session Long Project for this course, you are working with several classmates as a virtual team on a competitive project. This project involves assessment of both group and individual work. Your team's process and task output will serve as the material for this SLP. Remember to respond to the Discussion that is set up for your team.
Review the rules for the team project, "Virtual Teams: 101 Tips." At this point your team has submitted one list of tips. You will now prepare a second list of original tips.
SLP Assignment Expectations
By the end of this module, submit your list of tips along with a 2- to 3-page analysis that addresses the norms that were developed by your team. It is possible that your list of norms could be quite lengthy. Try to limit your paper to a few of the most important ones.
Keys to the Assignment
Identify at least two communication and two task norms that operate in your team. Remember that norms can be "unspoken."
What problems/limitations did you run across due to lack of norms governing your team's behavior?
Did you try anything to overcome the obstacles? How did it work?
What norms do you think your team should have established to make your work go more smoothly?
This checklist may help you evaluate your team's norms. Many teams find it helpful to use the Discussion to discuss the norms on this checklist that apply to your team:
Team Norms. (n.d.). http://www.wilsonmar.com/teamnorm.htm#Assembly
Your paper will be evaluated using the following five (5) criteria:
Assignment-Driven Criteria (Precision and Breadth): Does the paper fully address all Keys to the Assignment? Are the concepts behind the Keys to the Assignment addressed accurately and precisely using sound logic? Does the paper meet minimum length requirements?
Critical Thinking (Critical Thinking and Depth): Does the paper demonstrate graduate-level analysis, in which information derived from multiple sources, expert opinions, and assumptions has been critically evaluated and synthesized in the formulation of a logical set of conclusions? Does the paper address the topic with sufficient depth of discussion and analysis?
Business Writing (Clarity and Organization): Is the paper well written (clear, developed logically, and well organized)? Are the grammar, spelling, and vocabulary appropriate for graduate-level work? Are section headings included in all papers? Are paraphrasing and synthesis of concepts the primary means of responding to the Keys to the Assignment, or is justification/support instead conveyed through excessive use of direct quotations?
Effective Use of Information (Information Literacy and References): Does the paper demonstrate that the student has read, understood and can apply the background materials for the module? If required, has the student demonstrated effective research, as evidenced by student’s use of relevant and quality (library?) sources? Do additional sources used in paper provide strong support for conclusions drawn, and do they help in shaping the overall paper?
Citing Sources: Does the student demonstrate understanding of APA Style of referencing, by inclusion of proper end references and in-text citations (for paraphrased text and direct quotations) as appropriate? Have all sources (e.g., references used from the Background page, the assignment readings, and outside research) been included, and are these properly cited? Have all end references been included within the body of the paper as in-text citations?
After all teams have submitted their papers, you will be able to see the names of the highest scoring teams listed in the Hall of Fame.
