1. Define the team’s goal and prioritize the types of information that is desired [Min15]. From work experience, a group project is always better when the right individuals are assigned for specific projects. One of many examples of this would be from my experience working for a commodities firm. Some projects required adept technical ability to compile reports and analyze data for statistical congruencies. Other times, the analysis required individuals with stronger sof skills to identify emotional triggers that would cause an increase/decrease in trade activity for a given period. By using these individuals in their areas of strength, the company could provide better support for clients and also identify various time periods of increased demand for support for trading clients. Team work was increased tremendously because the individuals in the different groups typically had similar thought and work processes, this allowed for the teams to become very efficient and able to restructure a process quicker based on the desired outcomes. 2. Prioritize motivating factors and their effect on output [Min15]. Within the same financial company mentioned above, our teams were also aligned by our major motivating factors. For some individuals, stability and work/life balance were the top priority. For other individuals, financial compensation was the primary motivator. Once this information was determined, management at the firm could better determine the types of teams that could be created and the timeframe in which they could be expected to complete a project. Specifically, I worked with individuals that did not a have problem working a 55-hour week to achieve a goal because almost all of us were young, had no children at home, had no issues with telecommuting and were constantly seeking a challenge to prove our worth to the company. 3. Yesterday’s assumptions don’t work in today’s environment [Jef14]. From recruiting IT professionals, I got the chance to understand beta testing for today’s environment. Specifically, I recruited for Apple, Zune and other mobile media manufacturers. And one specific topic that they all brought up was how the time frame for beta testing had shrunk with the improvement of internet speeds available to the average consumer. Specifically, the problem that they both experienced was users actually overwhelming their servers for content based on the information that they could download within a specific time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
