|Team Name: Socioeconomics of Ebola Date: ___10/4/19______________|
|Goals||· What are the personal goals (small g) of each member on this team? (Team Member #1,#2, #3, etc) Make sure they connect to the DREAM on the Individual Profile.
1. Anna- To gain experience in academia, to move the project forward and publish deliverables
2. Lindsay- To learn a lot and to potentially get published
3. Nate- To add to his experience, network, and collaborate in interdisciplinary work
· What is the Project GOAL (big G) we’re all committed to achieve together?
– Our goal is to utilize the data we collected on the ground to create a model to accurately predict, in real time and space, the probability that a human will partake in a risky behavior at the same time that a bat with a high likelihood of having Ebola is in the same area.
· Is our Project Goal scaled to our resources (dreams, materials, skills, differences, etc.) and constraints (assignment, time, skills, etc.)
– Our goal is scaled to our ability to obtain materials including accurate census and demographic data to use to upkeep the real-time model.
· What are the metrics for success for what we’re producing?
– An accurate model
– Published papers: a case study, best practices of surveying, and a theoretical model
|Roles||· Who is responsible for which deliverables?
– Nate and Anna are responsible for the case study and best practices
– Lindsay is primarily responsible for the model
· Which deliverables that require collaboration, subgroups & individual work? Who does each person depend upon to succeed?
– The model requires all of us to contribute valuable knowledge and collaborate in order for it to be accurate and precise
· Do we need a project manager to coordinate?
– No, we successfully come to consensuses about logistical coordination and project work and can sort out any issues independently
· What are the deliverables each person is accountable to produce?
– Nate and Anna are responsible for the case study and best practices and will collaborate on the writing
– Lindsay is primarily responsible for the model but will be helped by Anna and Nate as well
|Procedures||· Decision Making – What process shall we use: consensus, majority rules, deference to expert, default to the loudest, or?
– We use the consensus process the majority of the time in order to collaborate the most effectively
– If we disagree, we tend to each make our point until we can make an agreement, or we defer to an expert or to one of our advisors
· Effective Meetings – Focus on key, timely decisions together vs. status/update (offline);
– We switched to having smaller meetings with only the students on our team once per week in addition to the meeting with our advisors
– This allows us to make progress and sort smaller questions/issues amongst ourselves without needing to involve our professors
· Meeting roles: scribe, facilitator, time keeper
– We all individually take notes and Prof. Bocchini keeps the overall meeting notes/assignments
· Communication – FTF: frequency, time, location; type of technology: (Googledocs, Hangout, etc.); expectations for responsiveness; ‘best time to work’ (AM, PM, weekends?)
– Communicate several times per week via slack and imessage to delegate tasks, recap, and organize plans for the week
– Weekly Monday meeting: 4pm, Upper/lower campus, undergrads and grad student
– Weekly Wednesday meetings: 6pm, Iaccoca, Professors, undergrads, and grad student
|Relationships||· Team Diversity – What is the diversity on our team? Disciplines to tap for solutions; individual earning styles for the stages of invention; overall team learning style strengths and places to supplement; cultural backgrounds , work experience, dreams to leverage for scope & impact of goals, new roles, better procedures; languages for more diverse customer set, bigger market;
– Anna: Materials Science, peace-keeping, goal-oriented, passionate
– Nate: Industrial Systems, engaged in the project, passionate, reliable
– Lindsay: IBE, focused, driven, outspoken, confident
· Listening – Notice my binary thinking, auto-rankism, and go beyond it.
– Generally are very successful at listening actively to eachother
· Team Name–What’s a team name that captures who we are and what we’re going to do?
– Assessing the Socioeconomic Factors Underlying Ebola Infection
