Team Preparation

I believe that to prepare professionals for an online group project, I will provide a set of suggested group guidelines and expectations on communications. This will be very important because I believe a majority of people will be used to working independently and it will take some time for everyone to get into the groove. Therefore, I would start the group process right away, allowing the teams to work out some kinks before the core of the project starts. I think it would be beneficial to have each team post their team guidelines because it would help initiate the conversation. I would also have a "checking in" with me at some point in the middle of the timeline to make sure they are on track and the team is running smoothly.
