As a group/team, explore and understand the effect of group behavior, specifically cross-cultural team development and success, on organizational performance and effectiveness, and to learn new or to enhance leading edge presentation skills
Related to the following course objective:
Successfully participate as a team member, lead teams, and manage independent teams to accomplish specific goals and objectives
Portfolio comprised of two parts:
Part 1--OB research findings from which the presentation (Part 2) will be created. Part 1 should be a comprehensive outline, with expository content under headings and subheadingscontainingdata and information, analyzed,synthesized, assessed andgraphically formatted as presentation (see Part 2 details below). The outline will have broader and more intensive content—that is, OB-related data, information, concepts, theories, models, methods, practices—than Part 2 because Part 1 will reflect your research, note taking and fact gathering—that is, what you have learned aboutgroup-levelorganizationalbehavior from required weekly and outside resources and the weekly discussions.Think of Part 1 as the notes section underneath slides in traditional presentation applications, useful to keep a presenter on track and serve as "cheat sheets" when questions are asked beyond the bulleted slide content.Part 1 notes will also include resource reference list and in-text citations.
2. Part 2--Graphic presentation. Do not use Power Point (PPT). Included in Assignment 2’s purpose is learning new skills or enhancing existing skills to create innovative presentations applicable to real-world workplace and other professional environments. If you are interested in building slide technology skills, I recommend that you consider using Prezi (an innovative replacement for PPT). For information, go to https://prezi.com/signup/public. Or feel free to use other options such as video (e.g., YouTube), website page/s (e.g., wix.com) or other innovative graphical presentation application suitable for illustrating synthesized, key data and information from the comprehensive content generated in Part 1. Consider integrating audio or animated elements or a concept map, SWOT analysis, or narration into the presentation to increase impact, meaningfulness and persuasiveness.
