Overview and Rationale:
Through our lectures and reading this week, we have focused on some key topics–team building and development, consensus and collaboration, leadership styles, conflict resolution–related to leadership, applying those topics to the virtual environment. Although we have treated these as somewhat separate topics, in action they must be integrated together when execution in the context of a virtual team. For this assignment, your team will be writing a research paper exploring a topic related to the material presented this week.
Course Outcome Connection:
Demonstrate an understanding of key topics related to leading remote teams, such as team building and development, leadership styles, conflict resolution, building consensus, and fostering collaboration
Write an 8 – 10 page paper addressing one of the topics listed below:
Strategies for team development in a virtual environment
Sources of and solutions to conflict in a virtual environment
Near vs. far leadership strategies (how might leadership strategies or approaches differ in an onsite vs. remote setting)
Building trust in a virtual workplace
Keeping team members accountable on a virtual project
If your team has a strong desire to write on a slightly different topic related to the topics covered this week, please let me know, and I will consider it for approval. Papers that show strong and reflective consideration of these issues will be more likely to earn a higher grade.
