The Division of Labor:
Criteria: The above roles have been designated according to strengths and personal
interests.
Method: Work will be divided up equally amongst team members at team meetings.
Personal preferences and roles will be given consideration during this process.
Team Plan: *See attached Matrix/Calendar at the back of the folder
Meeting Management:

Frequency At least two hours every Tuesday starting at 6:00pm in the Sky
Bridge of WWU Library, and as otherwise needed.
Scheduling As dictated by the attached matrix/calendar; alterations may be
made to accommodate work conflicts.
Attendance Mandatory; exceptions made under work circumstances only.
Communication Check and respond to emails, actively participate in meetings.
Attitude Motivate others with a good work ethic and a positive attitude.
Decision Making Consensus, everyones opinion is given equal consideration.
Conflict Management Negotiationthis is our interaction issue!

Accountability Process:

Completed tasks should match deadlines outlined in the time matrix; if they do
not, the schedule will be altered so that group members are required to turn in a
rough draft several days in advance (at least 2 days prior to the original deadline).
Remind group members of what is expected of them at meetings and during class
time to ensure that no one falls behind.
Check-up on actions and schedule intermediate peer reviews for weekly Tuesday
meetings.
Distribute the workload according to specified roles and responsibilities outlined
in the contract; if workload is not equal, redistribute according to skill and time
availability.
Contact our team member liaison (Frank) if you need more time, or require help
to complete a particular task.

Rewards and Punishments:


Project Points: Equal distribution.
Non-performance and Failure to Meet Commitments: If an issue arises where a
particular member is not pulling his/her weight, the team will call an emergency meeting.
At the meeting, the person who has fallen behind will have a chance to explain why s/he
has not been able to meet his/her deadlines. The team will then redistribute work
according to time availability, and meet more often to facilitate and monitor other
members progress.
Disruptive Behavior: If we feel that one member has gone as far as to consistently hinder
team progress, we will first provide them with a warning.
Punishments: If their behavior continues, we will be forced to inform them that points
will be deducted in the end.
Negative Feedback: Everyone should have equal ground to voice their opinions without
being attacked. If there is a problem, it should be discussed in front of everyone, and
without pointing fingers at any particular team member. In the worst-case scenario that
points need to be deducted, the person should be informed at a group meeting.
Hopefully, this will encourage an increase in performance in the future. No one wants to
let their team down, but gossiping and telling secrets behind each others back is not
going to inspire them to work. It will only create a negative working environment.
Rewards:
Positive encouragement
An A on the project
Friendships
Ice Cream (and any other fun activities)!!!
Follow-Up:
Time-outs: A team member can call an emergency meeting whenever s/he feels that it is
necessary to discuss a pressing issue/problem. Team members must work together to
schedule a time as soon as possible.
Revisiting our Contract: Revisit the task matrix for clarity and changes that need to be
made when unclear situations arise.
Contract Revisions: Alterations to specific sections of this contract will be made only
with a unanimous vote from all five group members.
