SBA Team Responsibilities

It is important to understand the full nature of what we are doing on this project. You have met the client, watched examples, and now have the first few nomination shortlists. Take a deep breath, and prepare yourself for a busy month. To this end, here are my expectations of what you will need to do as a team and as an individual.

This is a team task, therefore the entire class is expected to behave in a particular way and follow the same set of tasks. It is your responsibility to input into the project. Failure to do so will result in expulsion form the project and failure of the unit. Please use this to guide you through the project and the assignment.

All team members will need to:-

  • Meet all deadlines
  • Stick to the schedule
  • Observe organisational hierarchy (Client, Tutors, Task Team Leaders, Production Team leaders.)
  •  Team leaders will be responsible for making sure their team members are aware of their individual role, and all tasks are being met.
  • Take responsibility for completion of all tasks within their team
  • Be professional at all times.

Team roles and responsibilities will follow in the next few posts.
