Group Work Module

Getting Work Done - Project Planning

Complete this chart in collaboration with your group members. If you are meeting in person:

  • Work as a group to define which assets are important for the given tasks
  • Pass the sheet around and ask the members to add their names in the columns that represent existing skills or desires to grow in each area.
  • Decide as a group who will actually complete each task or whether the task can be shared between members.
  • When deciding who will do what, bear in mind both current skill and your group member’s desire to grow in a particular area.
  • Don’t make firm decisions immediately. Send out notes/decisions and ask for confirmation.

When meeting online:

  • Have 1- 2 group members fill out the task breakdown (left-hand) column, then use a shared document (e.g. Google docs; OneDrive) to have others fill out their names.
  • Don’t decide who will do what until everyone has had a fair chance to express their interest in different areas.
  • Have the team lead, send out assigned tasks, then wait for the other group members to confirm they are happy before finalizing tasks.
