analyzed using course topics/concepts and presented; Phase 3) teamwork employed in each phase of the project analyzed and success of the team evaluated. Your grade will be based on the reports (team charter, team proposal, presentation summary/outline; written team report; written individual report) and presentation (team presentation) that will be submitted. Teams will be comprised of about 5 members. A team charter (see course information in Blackboard) must be completed by each team to outline your goals and ground rules for teamwork. The preliminary charter is due via email and posting to the group file exchange area by Jan. 30 and the final charter is due by Feb. 2. All CEOs/top management teams selected should be pre-approved by me no later than Feb. 15. All teams will submit periodic feedback and peer evaluations. Groups should be finalized by Jan. 17. Please note that presentation dates and chapter assignments may change if the number of teams change due to class size. Formatting of all Reports All major reports must be handed in and submitted in the assignments area of Blackboard (team proposal, team report, individual report) should be a maximum of 8 to 10 pages (excluding cover page and appendices), typed (double-spaced ) in a font no smaller than 10 point, and with one-inch margins. Please check for spelling and grammatical errors as their presence may reduce your grade. Include an additional cover sheet with the project title, your names, and date of submission. I recommend that you to keep a journal or log of all events that take place with respect to the project and document your progress in your Blackboard Group page: leadership, team, progress toward implementation, meetings held, and problems encountered. These will inform your team and individual reports.

    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.
