BUS 333 Team Project
There’s a lot here, please read all the way through
What: The project will consist of a written team paper and an oral team presentation. Teams are free to select any topic relevant to the field of Organizational Behavior (subject to instructor approval so that there will not be duplication). Typically, teams find a specific topic in the textbook that is of particular interest to them and do more in depth research on the subject, ideally looking at a different angle on the topic such as examining the interplay between two topics to get a new perspective. Topics can be studied through multiple authoritative sources including journal articles, news articles, books, interviews, etc. (more details below). Email the professor with your choice of topic by the due date on the schedule.
Why: The primary reason for this assignment is to create formal, purposeful teams in the classroom so that you can apply what you are learning about organizational behavior to the team, and transform it into a highly effective unit. This team experience is your ‘laboratory’ for learning about structuring and leading organizations. Use the concepts and models from the course to understand and improve your team’s performance.
Also, your team will be the basis for your individual final paper. To that end, you will be required to keep an Individual Journal about your team’s interactions and your experiences with your team.
