  10. 10. What is a team? A team is: a small group of people with complementary skills committed to a common purpose as well as sharing performance goals and an approach for which they hold themselves Mutually accountable .
  11. 11. Engineering is teams Professional Success: individuals working alone are usually ineffective in solving current complex engineering problems. Instead, well-trained interdisciplinary teams can address complex problems more productively. Industry Work Environment: Boeing, Cessna, Lockheed, GE, Intel, Motorola, Xerox, Ford, GM, AT&T all publicly state their commitment to a team-based environment ABET Criterion: Graduates must demonstrate “an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams”
  12. 12. Effective Teams Interdependence: team members count on each other Goal Specification: team shares common goals by which to measure its success Cohesiveness: motivation to work in team. Task-cohesion is more important than social cohesion. Role and Norms: a team's internal operating procedures ensure all contribute Communication: effective interpersonal communication is vital to team functioning

Code of Cooperation <ul><li>Defines your team norms— </li></ul><ul><ul><li>operating rules, expected behavior, rewards, sanctions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>modified as needed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>written and shared, so expectations are clear </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No “unwritten rules”, which can lead to miscommunication </li></ul></ul>
