MGT 217 Individual Team Analysis Introduction As a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and a member of my chosen organization, the Marine Corps League, it was simple to pick an organization for the individual team analysis paper. Since 1995, it has been my honor to serve as member of the E 2/14 Joliet detachment #808 with the Marine Corps League. In order to form a proper in depth analysis on this self-managed team, I must first start my paper explaining the ir history, mission and understanding of self-managed teams within the this organization. It is important to note the individual detachments of the Marine Corps League, such as detachment #808, are non-for-profit organizations which operate under the same policies, guidelines, and systematic management/leadership practices of the national Marine Corps League. History of the Marine Corps League The Marine Corps League perpetuates the traditions and spirit of all U.S. Marines and Navy Corpsmen, who proudly wear or who have worn the eagle, globe and anchor of the Corps. It takes great pride in crediting its founding in 1923 to World War I hero, then Major General Commandant John A. Lejeune. It takes equal pride in its Federal Charter, approved by An Act of the Seventy-Fifth Congress of the United States of America and signed and approved by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 4, 1937. The League is the only Federally Chartered Marine Corps related veterans organization in the country. Since its earliest days, the Marine Corps League has enjoyed the support and encouragement of the active duty and Reserve establishments of the U. S. Marine Corps. Today, the League boasts a membership of nearly 61,000 men and women, officer and enlisted, active duty, Reserve Marines, honorably discharged Marine Veterans and qualified Navy Corpsmen . It is also and is one of the few Veterans Organizations that experiences regular increases in its membership s each year (Marine Corps League, 2007). 1
