A Personal Organizational Concern

The purpose of this project is to provide a real-world situation in which what you learn in your course materials will make a difference. First, analyze your personal team environment, and then, offer suggestions to be used to overcome team challenges. This methodology allows you to take theory into the real world and to see how you can bring about needed changes.

The final project is a real-world analysis of your own team experience. The project will apply the key theories, functions, principles, concepts, techniques, and vocabulary of teams toward understanding your team's current challenge. You may involve your team leader in this exercise. Provide a detailed analysis of the challenges faced by your team, and design strategies to address these challenges.

Final Project Description

Consider a common team challenge in your organization. In case you have never worked in an organization, ask a friend or relative for the information. If you could change one aspect within your team within the organization to make it more successful, make your life better, or make the team function better, what would it be?

Be detailed in describing the current situation in your team - what are the facts such as team makeup, team pressures, and team chemistry? Please DO NOT present solutions at this time. If you do, you'll start to bias the solution with your existing mentality. Consider multiple perspectives from various stakeholders within the team. How might the views differ among the various stakeholders? You can also obtain the big challenge from a team leader. Clearly identify the following within the team:

- What is the current formation and chemistry of the team?
- How do team performance measures impact the team?
- What are the common myths, such as leadership myths or team myths, which exist within the team?

In essence, I am writing my own case study. In addition, include a general description of the organization. What does the organization do? How many departments are there? On which department are you focusing? How many members or teams are there in the department? What is the hierarchy in the department?
