Team Values and Norms
Attendance: It is necessary and important for all members to attend and participate in group design work when a meeting is planned. If a group member is unable to attend a meeting due to unforeseen issues it is the member's responsibility to inform the project leader. Lack of attendance will result in informing the design project management guides through the peer review evaluation.
Performance: Team members will follow a planning timeline and have work completed in a timely fashion. Team members will also attend and be prepared for team meetings. Team members will attend meetings with an attitude willing to work towards the completion of the design project management roadmap.
Ethics: Team members will follow the RIT code of ethics in doing his or her own work.
Professionalism: Each team member gives credit where credit is due. All work completed includes citations to appropriate literature, or sources of assistance. If a team member has gotten assistance from a publication or individual, then that assistance or guidance is fully documented in the reports prepared. Each team member is honest and trustworthy in their dealings with their peers. Since the project is designed to simulate how to work in groups professionalism will be maintained during team meetings and in communication efforts between members.
Reliable: Members keep the team apprised of their availability. Team members make every effort to maintain communication on project goals between meetings. E-mail inquiries between members should be answered within 24-hours, text or voice mail within 12-hours. Members will meet set deadlines, or give ample warning if it becomes apparent deadlines are unpractical or subject to extenuating circumstances.
Decisions: Decisions will be made by a majority rule of the project group. If a tie so arises the team project leader will break that tie.
Documentation: Team members will document any and all ideas. Share all formal documentation on the EDGE server. All work will include citation and references when applicable.
