Organizations are full of teams. Teams exist in all dimensions of life. In a workplace, teams combine the talents and skills of various individuals to accomplish organizational goals. At home, teams of parents or families work together for love and support. In the social arena, teams function to be part of something, whether it is a sport or a social group. Regardless of where the team exists, the dynamics of people within teams create the possibility of success. For this assignment you will choose three different teams within an organization that you will use for this assignment.
It will provide the best learning experience for you if one of the teams for your final project is a team that you are on. As needed, discuss options with your instructor early in Week 1 about team/organization selection to optimize your learning potential in the class.

Summarize the purpose, goals, and objectives of each of the three teams.
Analyze each team’s type (manager-led, self-directing, self-governing, etc.).
Evaluate the current stage of team development within each of the three teams.
Examine the dynamics of each team and how any interpersonal issues within the team are resolved.
Analyze the performance and productivity of each team, citing support from the readings this week.
Compare the intrinsic and extrinsic rewards for each team, citing support from the readings this week.
