TeamworkPlans for Improvement At meetings we will follow the agenda first and complete tasks before discussing topics not related to the project. We will include a 10 minute social period in the agenda to conclude meetings. We will plan Wimba meetings to communicate using technological devices. Each member will update weekly availability since schedules are constantly changing. Sunday’s will be the first day of the week, and the day we submit our individual schedules.
