One of the most effective methods to evaluate a team is to conduct a self - diagnosis of the team covering various aspects like team formation, development, process, team members and overall team performance goals. In this paper, we perform a self-diagnosis to evaluate the above aspects of our team. This report emphasizes more of the soft or emotional aspects rather than the hard or procedural aspects. The majority of the content of this report comes from each individual member's personal opinion and perception about other team members and the team as a whole. Members used their own personal experience and the skills and knowledge they gained during this course to form their opinion. This is a student team comprising of five graduate students from the Communication and Team building course. The objectives of the team is to deliver two team products as part of the requirements for the above course and serve as an experimental set up to learn and practice various attributes and methods of teams. Team member's personal journals served as the main data source for this report. In order to diagnose our team we compared and contrasted our team's attributes and methods with that of an "ideal" team. This diagnosis covers the first part of our report that is categorized in to seven subsections. The second part of this report covers certain corrective action plans to fix the shortcomings we had in our team. We believe these recommendations will help the team to perform even better than we did this time.
