The purpose of this report is to analyze and critique in 5 scenes the transformation of the Dream Team from developing stage to becoming a peak performing machine.

The method used to achieve these goals is application of a model that was created and developed by the team. During our team modeling exercise, we arrived at a model that included the following stages: Assuming; Ice Breaking; Individual thinking; Offending; Sharing; Doing; Reviewing; Polishing. We reduced these stages into five main themes. Our D.R.E.A.M. model consists of five stages: Developing, Reacting, Evaluating, Acting, and Measuring and Monitoring. Each stage is depicted as a scene that describes the events, team performance, behavior, actions and consequences.

The analysis focuses on the behaviors of each team member from a cultural perspective as well as on the team itself. This report evaluates the factors that either contributed or detracted from our team's performance by discussing cultural background; development of the D.R.E.A.M. model; observed events from a cultural perspective, analysis and related research for each phase; and last but not least, learnings.
