BUSI 520: FORUM 1 GROUP CONSENSUS REPORT

 Effective groups create shared assumptions and expectations about  behaviors. You and each of your group members will create a thread of at  least 600 words with at least 1 source in current APA format,  responding to the questions in the Group Consensus Report found in the  Group Discussion Board Forum.

Submit your individual thread by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday,  which is 10:59p.m. (CST)

 

Effective groups create shared assumptions and expectations about  behaviors. Submit a thread containing a brief description of yourself  and your own expectations regarding the following prompts:

  1. Describe Yourself: In a brief paragraph or two, describe  your past experience working in groups (at Liberty or elsewhere). What  is your personality type? What are your annoyances? How do you react  under stress? How would your boss at work describe you?
  2. Communication Expectations: Though it is required  that group members communicate substantively and weekly, what are your  expectations about acceptable response times? How many times per week  should each team member check the Group Discussion Board? What role will  conference calls or online chats have in moving the group forward? For what issues will you use the Group Discussion Board, online chats, etc.?
  3. Behavioral Expectations: What specific behaviors will  lead to successful completion of the project? What behaviors threaten  the project’s completion? How do you want others to describe the quality  and quantity of your effort? Describe your conflict resolution style.
  4. Flexibility Expectations: What circumstances are present  in your life that might require a request for flexibility? What,  precisely, does flexibility mean to you? (Does it mean “understanding”  and “patience?” Does it mean “someone help?” Does it mean “do not hold  the operating rules of the group against me if I am having a hard  time?”) Lastly, if someone encounters a problem (sickness, travel,  etc.), when and how should he or she communicate this to the group?
  5. Performance Expectations: At what level should individual  work be presented to the group? Should all work submitted to the group  reflect MBA-level writing, or is “draft mode” acceptable? What final  grade do you desire on the group project, and what, specifically, are  you willing to do to achieve it? How do you want to be known for the  quality of your work?
  6. Expectations about Timelines:  What does it mean to be timely? For some, being “on time” is late, while  others believe that being “on time” is actually early. Is being “on  time” early or late? (Keep in mind that being on time means different  things to different people.)
  7. Final Submission: What  are the expectations for the final submission of the group project? Do  you want it to be submitted earlier than the deadline time, so that you  have a final chance to “approve” the submission? If so, what time do you  want that final submission to be? Do you want to have it required that  each student submits an “I approve” reply to the official submission?  Some students want to review everything one last time, prior to the  official submission. Other students assume that all of the changes have  been made, and do not have the desire to review everything again prior  to the final submission. How do you specifically want the final  submission to be approached? (Keep in mind that the final submission,  including any approval discussion board replies, will need to be  submitted by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday of Module/Week 8. Therefore, your deadlines will also need to be on a consistent time zone (e.g., ET).
  8. Conflict Resolution: How  will group disagreements be resolved? Will the majority of votes “count”  in the result of a disagreement? How any potential conflicts will be  resolved needs to be discussed immediately. This eliminates potential  confusion and/or frustration later on.

Answer all questions as prompted and include additional information as needed. Incomplete answers will be evaluated as such.
