Several people working on the Global Treps Project are confused about their responsibilities for providing content for the new website. Recall that the team members include you, the project manager, Bobby, the IT guy, and three people who will run shark-tank-like events in Vietnam, India, and Ethiopia (Kim, Ashok, and Alfreda). Recall that the activities in the WBS for the in-house development includes the following:
18.104.22.168 Guidelines and templates for events
22.214.171.124 Acceptance of ideas for needed new products or services
126.96.36.199 Custom site for 20 events
You and your team also need to provide information for the videos that you are outsourcing. Recall that the purpose of these short videos is to show people how to use the site and provide suggestions for holding the events. That activity is 188.8.131.52 Video creation for website in the WBS You have selected the company that will do the outsourced video creation, and their main contact person is Angela.
1. Prepare a RACI chart for the four WBS activities listed. You decide that one person should be accountable for each of these four activities, spreading the work between you, Kim, Ashok, and Alfreda. Bobby will be informed of each activity, and you will be consulted on the ones you are not accountable for. Document key assumptions you make in preparing the chart.
2. You realize that all of your team members have different personality types, and you believe you could work better as a team if you understood each other better. You asked everyone to take an MBTI-based assessment (a free one you found at www.humanmetrics.com). You are an ENTJ, Bobby is an INTJ, Kim is an ISFP, Ashok is an ESTJ, and Alfreda is an ISFJ. Find information about each of these MBTI types and summarize their traits as well as suggestions for improving teamwork.
