 POST 1:
Networking: A key to successful Teamwork
A.    Consider the different teams presented in your reading assignment. How do these teams manage their team boundaries? What are the trade-offs between internal cohesion and external ties within each type of team? support your discussion with at least two external sources.
Teams are of different types such as Virtual teams, Problem-solving teams, cross-functional teams, self- managed teams but every team has to maintain their own boundaries to function up to the mark.
What are boundaries
Boundaries are the limitations, plans which meant for reducing distraction from outside sources and to increase the teams focus on their roles and responsibilities. They could be simple rules which are a part of the teams’ principles.
How to set boundaries
·         Members need to work individually along with their team leader. Everyone of them need to understand as to what make them deviate from their works. Make a list of the important activities relating to their group project for which the team is formed and make a schedule by prioritizing their work according to their importance.
·         This will help them to have an understanding of how to manage their work. Set short term and long-term goals so as to be responsible for completing the tasks.
·         Remember that the boundaries can be breached. It is not possible that they will stay in place forever, sometimes the members may knowingly or unknowingly cross their boundaries.
·         The team has to communicate with the other teams or members as to what extent they have set the boundaries. It will help them to have necessary support from others and they will be less disturbing to them (Guanfeng, & Zhiyang, 2011).
Internal cohesion and External ties
Internal cohesion has a positive relationship with the external ties. The level of internal cohesion defines the level of support and cooperation the members have with each other. If the cohesion is more it will not affect the members to outsource other expertise and necessary resources. But if in case the internal cohesion is poor, which means that the members may fail at assessing the teams needs thus failing to form proper level of external ties (Jimenez-Buedo, & Miller, 2018).
B.     Consider the list of common roles for team members, which of these roles do you think you play in your own teams or group? Why?
The common roles include implementer, shaper, investigator, member, planter and coordinator. I would like to play the implementer role in the team. These are the people who actually get the tasks completed. They need to think practical and continuously strive to find best solutions for the problems. Since I’m efficient, practical and can organize things well I suit for this role the best. It demands conservative nature and have rigidity towards accepting the change. Though almost every role in the team has their own importance, without Implementer nothing could be completed. They have their identity and respected by all. it’s a challenging and tough to perform and be successful. As I love challenges I choose to be in this role (, 2018).
