All with differing skills and levels of experience, to allow a service to be provided efficiently and effectively.

Reflecting upon individuals’ experience with team projects this semester is crucial for students to develop teamwork and collaboration skills, effective communications, conflict resolution and improve performance for future projects. This paper reflects on the role that I played in this semesters’ student team project, as well as explaining what I learned about teamwork and collaboration.

Everything is everything in the world of short stories. Steinbeck's The Chrysanthemums is full of thick rhetoric that raises questions and stirs the mind and imagination. Everything from the title, to the last line needs to be thought about more than once. The story isn't just about a farmer's wife who likes pretty flowers. Not in the least! The Chrysanthemums is a story about how Elisa Allen is forced to a life that she feels is trapping her. The story is set in the early twentieth century and these times don't allow for just any woman to leave her ordinary, socially and politically correct life. Feminism is a large part of the story, and main character Elisa Allen's language, actions, and even the way she is described play a large
Through out history many things have evolved when it comes to comprehending human interactions. From courtship traditions set by our ancestors to the way we express our independence, engage in partner preferences and selection process. Few things prevail the test of time, but the one thing that does not change is how quickly and unknowingly we let a relationship become mundane. “The Chrysanthemums” by John Steinbeck reflects a relationship that is no different. During the time the novel was written women were viewed as an accessory to the good life and had no real impact on society or the world that surrounded them.
John Steinback created a masterpiece that describes a most peculiar case of a strong minded woman bound by a rural area during the 1920’s and 30’s. The narrator writes about a rather troubled protagonist who seems to have a lot of ambition built up inside to change her ways of just being an old fashioned marital wife. Her biggest problem could be the fact she is being repressed by the primitive ideology that men work and women nurture. Studying the characters and point of view of “The Chrysanthemums” allows for a better understanding to how truly alone our protagonist, Elisa, may feel.
What is a team work? Team work can be defined as when actions of individuals are brought together for the purpose of a common goal. Each person in a team puts his efforts to achieve the objectives of large group. Teams make efforts to achieve the success but not necessarily the success is achieved every time. Within a team every member plays a role to achieve the team’s objectives. These roles add new and important dimensions to interactions of team members. Bruce Tuckman’s team development theory provides a way to tackle the tasks of making a team through the completion of the project. On the part of the team every member played an important role to achieve the success at
In many aspects of our life, it is pervasive to work in a team. No matter in company, school, or another type of team it is necessary to be a part of a team and to achieve a team goal by corporations. People join a team with different personalities, goals, values, beliefs and needs. On the one hand, these differences can be a valuable quality of teams. On the other hand, these same differences inevitably lead to different levels of conflicts as well.
Project management in today’s challenging economy requires collaborative effort across an organization. Project managers are expected to make the most out of their team regardless of its composition. Therefore, unless the group operates as a high performance team, the project will not successfully balance the trade-off among cost, schedule, and quality. Relying strictly on the science of project management leads to an unspoken assumption that members on the project team would harmoniously work together to meet the project deliverables. We have seen time and time
A team is a group of people working together to achieve the same objectives. Katzenbach and Smith state in their report The Discipline of Teams (1993) that ‘the essence of a team is common commitment. Without it, groups perform as individuals; with it, they become a powerful unit of collective performance.’ Throughout this study, I will analyse the many different advantages and disadvantages of working in teams and its effects on team members and their performance and commitment within the team. I will consider many different aspects of team work and refer to certain established theories in
