Teamwork & communication in teams
MBFI - Instructions for doing team reports
Work in the groups in which you worked during the workshop.
If you were part of more than one group, then you need to work with each of
The grade for the teamwork workshops will be given for the group, with individual variations (see below).
Each group must prepare a cover sheet and a document as follows. It may be in English or in French or a mixture of both languages.
If some instructions below are not possible to follow, then make a responsible decision to do it differently (and explain why very briefly).
You may look at work done by other students. You may also look at various documents about teamwork. If you wish to find others on the web, use the search term "teamwork" (one word) or "team building" (single search term). To find documents about communication and teamwork, use those two terms. However, do not copy web pages - this is plagiarism, and very severely punished. All quotes from web-based documents must be referenced, using the URL.
Keep the length of your document to a minimum (do not write a book!), but make sure that it contains all the items in sufficient detail. Say the least possible. Quality is more important than quantity. If you have a photos, you may include them too.
Writing your report is still part pf your teamwork. Your team needs to meet from time to time in order to write the report.
Present your work in 3 parts as indicated below:
1. Cover sheet
A. Name of your group company number and name).
B.. List of members, with email addresses.
C. Meetings. Make a list of dates and times of your meetings, with attending members. For example:
D. Summary of attendance. Indicate individual participation in the class activities (concentration, maturity, behaviour, attitude, etc), and in writing the report.
E. Relative contribution. Names of each member of the group (alpha order), with the %age contribution for each member. The %age score represents the relative contribution made by each member of the group to the final document. For example:
At least 1% difference between each of the percentage scores must be given. Thus for a group of 6 members, there will be at least 5 points difference between the lowest and the highest %ages. No member can get the same score here.
NB. You will need some good teamwork skills to work out these percentages.
This section contains the results of your activities.

Each group must prepare 2 versions - according to the following instructions:
Peace and survival of life on Earth as we know it are threatened by human activities that lack a commitment to humanitarian values. Destruction of nature and natural resources results from ignorance, greed, and a lack of respect for the Earth's living things... . It is not difficult to forgive destruction in the past, which resulted from ignorance. Today, however, we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations. Clearly this is a pivotal generation... . Our marvels of science and technology are matched if not outweighed by many current tragedies, including human starvation in some parts of the world, and extinction of other life forms... . We have the capability and responsibility. We must act before it is too late. Tenzin Gyatso the fourteenth Dalai Lama.
