Team Projects

I have been working on a team project with two other co-workers over the past few weeks. It has been a simple project, with each of us researching a few examples of recent chapter 11 filings. The only real issue with this project has been that the default team leader holds meetings to discuss the project almost everyday. His meetings have been such a waste of time. Two of us finished our research last week. The only one who has not finished his research is the the team leader who holds meetings to discuss the project. He needs to shut up and do his stupid research. And when the boss asked the team leader yesterday why the project was not finished, he responded it was because there were too many of us on the project. WTF?? Nothing like passing the buck..

Update: Just sat with the team leader on this project, and I now understand why he has been taking forever on this project. The other member of the team put incorrect information in our report. I just spent the last two hours redoing her research..Ugh!

Meetings should be minimized as much as possible. They interrupt a person's train of thought. Once that train is stopped, It's going to take a lot of energy again to overcome the inertia. And yes, a team is only as strong as the weakest link. I'm really sorry to hear that you were the one who have to fix the broken link. Take care.
