In the Section 3: Performance Standards table, identify at least three performance standards that will be used to measure the performance of the functional area team. Provide a rationale for each identified performance standard.

What research did you use to support your work in arriving at the goals and activities? Use APA style and formatting to cite your sources.
What current or past experiences did you draw from for this assessment, if any?
