Team Values and Norms


The purpose of Norms & Values for a successful MSD team is to have guidelines in case problems arise in regards to inter-team relations. This section should be referred to in any situations of uncertainty about expectations, responsibilities, decisions, etc.

Expectations for Members

All member will demonstrate professionalism, be on time to meetings or will notify other members if they will be late or absent. The expectation will be that team members will produce work to the best of their ability and if they are not able to, tell someone or raise awareness to other group members before the due date. In addition, when possible, keep the project as fun as possible.

Roles & Responsibilities

Roles will be taken on as needed to focus on capturing specific skills of individuals with which they have expertise. Roles will also be taken on as needed to fulfill graduation requirements.

Balancing The Distribution of Work

Weekly actionable measures will be spelled out and distributed to each of the team members. As a team, we will come up with a completed list, what hasn’t been completed, and a what needs to get done for the upcoming week during our weekly meeting time. From this list, the team will distribute work “equally” as needed to complete the required deliverables.

Honoring The Strength Of The Individual

All members of the team possess unique traits and skills that they will be able to bring to the project. Team members are expected and encouraged to work to their strengths but are also expected to have a hand in all facets of the project to promote the well-rounded nature of the project.

Decisions By Consensus

As a TEAM we will have to make major decisions for our project. All team member opinions and thoughts will be taken and considered to ultimately make a TEAM decision on major and large issues at hand. Before any final decisions are made, the TEAM will consult the guide, Jerry Adamski, for further analysis and opinion before a final decision is made.

Team Member Communication

Communication will take place through e-mail, online messenger applications, face-to-face, phone calls and text messages, Google Drive, Trello, when2meet, and any other online resources that allow a messenger or “posting” interface. All members are expected to respond to any messages within a reasonable timeframe to keep updated and all members on the same page.

Guide Communication

Communication with our guide, Jerry Adamski, will be done during class hours with all team members present. If communication with the guide is needed outside of class, each team member has the guide’s personal contact information.

Conflict Resolution

In order to resolve any conflicts that may arise, the team will implement a step by step process that will lead to an efficient and positive solution. If the disagreement is between two or three team members, the remaining individual(s) will hear both sides of the argument separately and mediate the situation from there. If a solution could not be reached, team members should seek out the team guide, Jerry Adamski, for guidance. If the disagreement is between all members, the team should directly seek assistance from Jerry to efficiently find a solution before any time is lost.

Continual Improvement

As a team, it has been agreed that we will self reflect on the work completed each week, in addition to a weekly team check in outside of the MSD meeting times. During these times, the team will focus on each completed task, what was learned, and what can be improved upon.


During the development process for the Skreppa Modular Shoe, there are vital philosophies that should be adhered to:
