Planning & Execution

Table of Contents

Your website should document your journey through MSD, so include work-in-progress as well as latest results. Use pdf's for display whenever possible so that information is easily viewable without the need to download files and open applications. (Your EDGE file repository should still contain original editable files).

Sample categories are listed below, but feel free to delete, change, or add nodes and files to better correspond to your project and your Guide’s expectations.

You may want to consider putting content related to this node in the Project Management directory. Several templates have been posted there for your reference.

Intellectual Property Considerations

Is your team considering filing for a provisional or non-provisional patent? Does your project's financial support carry any IP requirements? Are there select elements of your project that your customer has required that you keep confidential?

Team Roles

McKenzie Worden

James Forbes

Benjamin Kerlin

Lawrence Osai

Ryan Cody

Team Values and Norms

What are your expectations for team behavior?

How will you ensure balanced distribution of work?

How will you determine roles and responsibilities?

How will you honor the strengths of the individuals?

How will you interact with your guide?

How will you communicate with each other?

How will you make decisions?

What are the expectations for integrity or responsibility with the assigned tasks?

How will you manage conflict or when these expectations are not met?

Project Plans & Schedules

MSD I & II: work breakdown structure, Gantt charts, schedule, etc. Does each team member know what he should be working on at any given time in order to move the project forward?

Risk Assessment

Created in MSD I and updated throughout the project as needed. What could possibly go wrong? As the project progresses, are you actively managing these risks and (hopefully) driving them to low likelihood and/or low severity?

Meeting Minutes, Notes, & Actions

MSD I & II. Maintain a record of team/guide meetings. This includes discussion, action items, decisions made, and work assigned.

Peer Reviews

These should be conducted after each 3-week phase, in both MSD I & II. Are you using your peer reviews as an objective tool to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the team and all its members?

Project Reviews

Preparation, notes and actions, etc. Refer to Project Review page, as well.
