Designing Team and Team Identity
Part 1: Our text book lists about twelve elements that a manager should consider when designing a team (This is not a design team, this is selecting or hiring a team of people) Choose two elements that you think are not really important for building a team. Define the two elements and explain why these two are least important. Would you choose the same two for a face to face team and a virtual team? If you were a manager and were given a team of five 30-year-old males from the United States and you could hire one more person for the team, would you hire a female from France? why or why not?
Part 2: Do you feel more attached to your work team, your class team or your ‘team of family and friends?’ Do each of these ‘teams’ have a different identity? What is the difference?
