Communications and Team Building
As our newfound team made it’s team charter and goals we had no idea what lay ahead. Our team began to develop in the form, storm, norm, and perform stages. And being a multicultural team, boy did we storm. Heavily relying on internet-based communication we normed and performed well. Our team was challenged culturally so we communicated constantly paraphrased each other’s complicated sentences. In comparing our evaluation results the trend of the development of all the criteria was positive and all graphs exhibit a small peak in week six, followed by a short climb-down in week seven. This meant that every team member was busy in order to complete the requirements for report number one, and this was amplified by some last-minute dispute on the layout and content of the paper. In the end none of the team members assessed the team’s performance overly positive or overly negative.
