Management Theory Proc Week10
“Business school professor Amy Edmondson studies “teaming,” where people come together quickly (and often temporarily) to solve new, urgent or unusual problems. Recalling stories of teamwork on the fly, such as the incredible rescue of 33 miners trapped half a mile underground in Chile in 2010, Edmondson shares the elements needed to turn a group of strangers into a quick-thinking team that can nimbly respond to challenges” TED Salon Description.

The discussion board is a significant component of your grade. The discussion board is used to demonstrate your understanding of the concepts learned in the text and to reflect on and discuss the material with your classmates. Please make sure you tie the concepts learned each week and throughout the course to support your discussion board posts. The weekly recaps, found on the announcement tab, will be posted at the end of each week. Within the recaps, you will find examples of strong discussion board posts where students did an excellent job answering the questions and supporting their views. Please use these examples to gauge how your posts can be improved each week.
Additionally, your secondary posts to your classmates should further the discussion and include concepts learned from the text. A response of “I agree”, “ditto”, or “I disagree” are not acceptable without further clarification. To be clear, your primary and secondary post analysis must be thoughtful, well-reasoned and detailed. Respect of each other and of varying viewpoints is always expected.
