Discussion 5 “Teams”
Teams are complex working units. When we participate in a sports event on a team there are the superstars, the average players and the not-so-good players. We encounter those same categories of people at work when we are on a team.
Find an article about Teamwork (especially in a technical setting), (it could be a CURRENT web article). Add the URL link – summarize the article and discuss the challenges you have had with being in a team and how the situation could have been improved by either you or someone else.
