Assignment: High Performing Teams’ Training
This assignment is due in Unit 10 along with an additional required audio visual presentation from Unit 10.
Start this assignment now, so you will have sufficient time to add the narration and notes in Unit 10.
You have read about and practiced with high performing teams’ concepts, team management concepts and skills, and training steps. Now you will integrate your knowledge into an assignment that you will begin in Unit 9 to create a paper and then in Unit 10 create a PowerPoint presentation version with audio and submit the paper and audio visual presentation in Unit 10.
Make sure to read the Weinstein (2014) article from the Library.
