The following report chronicles the growth, development, trials, and tribulations of an Engineering Management student team throughout a ten-week time period. During this duration, ''THE Team" (our group both learned and experienced the essentials of group dynamics through associated class reading, as well as class assignments such as group activity, journal reviews, and most importantly a team report covering Cross-Cultural teams in the 1980s.

This report records member feedback toward the group dynamics through personal analysis of the team development. Overall, the group gives a positive review of the team building process, and rates itself between a Potential Team and a Real Team, as derived from Katzenbach's & Smith's The Wisdom of Teams. Other critical material such as an objective analysis of the team accounts, THE team's charter, criteria for creating high performance teams, plus additional examples of team exercises are presented
