Develop a 4–5-page plan for building a team. In your plan, explain the reasons for including specific functional areas on the team and describe the characteristics of effective team members. In addition, explain strategies for communication, delegating responsibility, making decisions, and handling conflict, as well as how the success of the team will be measured.
The ability to build and lead high-performing, collaborative teams is a critical skill in any size organization. By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:
Use the Capella library and the Internet to research the characteristics of effective teams, as well as strategies for building and leading teams. Use at 3–7 reputable resources to support your writing in this assessment.
For this assessment, consider you are a consultant hired by an established medium-sized manufacturing corporation with 250 employees. It directly markets one unique product. The corporation is run by a new CEO and 11 other executives who have been with the organization for varying lengths of time. The new CEO has an aggressive growth objective for the corporation of 100 percent over the next five years. The current business model will not support this objective and needs to be updated.
Your task is to create a team that will work together over a 9-month time frame to develop a proposal for a new business model and growth strategies. Your responsibilities include convening the team, assigning roles and responsibilities, structuring the team, monitoring activities and production, and documenting outcomes. The team members must come from at least three different functional areas because the new CEO wants input from a variety of stakeholders. The challenge is that under the old business model, none of the personnel working in the functional areas communicated or collaborated. In addition, the former CEO never asked for new ideas and seemed oblivious to issues the corporation was facing.
The following are key ideas for you to keep in mind as you write your plan, but this isn’t an outline for the plan. An outline and what you should include in your plan is defined in the Requirements section further below:
Develop a plan for building your team that you could present to the CEO. To facilitate evaluation of this assessment, format it according to APA guidelines.
The purpose of this assessment is to create an overview of what should be considered when developing teams. It is not intended to be an in-depth analysis. Using the scenario described above for this assessment, write a plan with the following sections. A template with this structure is provided in Resources for you to use to create your plan if desired.
Example assignment: You may use the assignment example, linked in the Resources, to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.
Based on the intended audience, your plan should be well organized and written in clear, succinct language. Target 4–5 double-spaced pages of content. Follow APA rules for attributing sources that support your analysis and conclusions.
