In order to utilize teams with the desired result, attention must be paid to how and why teams are assembled, launched, managed and rewarded. This course is also designed to prepare students for their Capstone project teams.

Topics covered will include: moving from group to team; stages of team development; identifying the key competencies for successful team functioning; critical roles and responsibilities on a team; ensuring team productivity; and troubleshooting common team problems. Particular attention will be paid to the critical success factors of Capstone teams - a unique type of team that has its own special challenges.
