During each term, students form work groups for the duration of the course. This ensures that students bring a variety of academic backgrounds and real-life experiences to the tasks assigned. By effectively aligning innovative thinking with educational resources, team members can learn to leverage their leadership and interpersonal skills:
What is your perspective on the issue and what is your role within the unit? Which strengths can you mobilize and how can you optimize your input?
What are the challenges involved? What processes need to be identified, analyzed and understood? Which operational strategies and tools are needed?
How do you translate an idea into a tangible result? What are effective negotiating and team-building techniques? How do you profile your strategic plan and promote team output?
Teams will be required to formally organize their units. Students are encouraged to switch roles between projects.
