Categorize your VTC example using Duarte and Snyder’s typology of
version identifies the type of team of which you were a part, but
provides too few details from your team experience to sufficiently
support your conclusion. In your final version, expand on this
discussion to detail what led you to the conclusion you arrived at
for the type of virtual team– what were the criteria you used and
what led you to the conclusion that your team type met those
criteria. Refer to Duarte and Snyder, chapter one, especially pages
3-9 for more information on this. You will want to keep in mind as
you develop this section that this requirement of your project
accounts for 20% of the grade for this project.
Describe relevant details of the VTC in terms of purpose, people,
process, and communication technologies.
version of your project is a good start to meeting this requirement–
you will want to expand on your discussion in each of the required
elements, especially of the people involved in your project. I
suggest that you organize this discussion to include a section for
each of the elements: purpose, people, process, and communication
Identify the complexity of social and technical issues involved in
version includes references to the social and cultural factors but is
not sufficiently developed to meet the project requirements. Refer to
Duarte and Snyder, especially chapter three, pages 55-72 for guidance
on assessing the cultural complexity factors of your team, and
include an analysis of the social and cultural factors that affected
your team’s experience. Be sure to discuss both the social/cultural
and technical factors. How did these issues manifest themselves in
this collaboration? How were they dealt with? What impact do you feel
they had on the outcome of your team?
Critically assesses key factors that influence VTC performance.
The project description calls for you to: “Provide an evaluation
of the VTC performance using the relevant critical success factors as
outlined in Duarte and Snyder. Your evaluation should provide an
in-depth analysis of one or two specific success factors and your
rationale for choosing these particular factors.”
this section of your paper you were to use the critical success
factors identified in Duarte and Snyder, Chapter One, pages 10-23 to
assess your example of virtual team collaboration. This is the same
set of factors you used in assignment u02a1. In your final version
you will want to provide an in-depth analysis of one or two specific
success factors and your rationale for choosing these particular
factors. As with the social and cultural factors, include a
discussion of how the factors you select for analyses affected the
outcomes and functioning of your virtual team. How did these factors
affect the process of your collaboration? How did these factors
affect the outcome of the collaboration?
Identify strategies for improving VTC performance.
paper begins the discussion on ways to improve team collaboration,
but does not sufficiently address these recommendations. The project
description calls for you to “provide suggestions that would
improve or enhance performance in this virtual team example.”
This section of your paper should include a very specific analysis of
the problems that your team experienced, or the opportunities for
improvement that you identify, and then very specific actionable
suggestions for improvement. What would you have done differently?
How would this have made a difference to the outcome of the team
collaboration? How would you have implemented your suggestions? How
would you be able to measure the improvement that would have
resulted? In your final version, be very specific in your suggestions
for improving this specific collaboration.
have done some good work here. I look forward to reading the final
version of your project.
