Team Project: Course Description

The 'Team Project' course is closely integrated with 'Organizational Processes', which has the readings and 'Communication for Managers' in which students do their oral presentations. In teams of five or six, students choose a real organization or company and analyze a change initiative that recently occurred, is ongoing or is anticipated. The course helps students practice their teamwork and leadership skills while learning and deepening their knowledge of organizational dynamics.

A project handbook, an orientation to teamwork file, two forms and three sample letters are included in this free course. Find a group of peers and start by going to the 'Team Project' course page.
