From the Paper:

" With the rise of teams and the use of team decision-making practices, as well as project management teams, both in the corporate world and in the academic environment challenged to produce more effective employees, new strategic methods of making these groups effective have been the objective of the business world. One great leap forward in improving team interaction and effectiveness which this and other teams have been making more use of are IT related technologies that, "tap into the intelligence expertise of team members"(Kerber & Buono, 2004, para.5). These IT solutions that rely on the backbone of the Internet such as email, newsgroups, and other conferencing type solutions are nothing more than software designed to facilitate communication and knowledge transfer between team members or employees in an organization and we have developed our team's competencies to a high degree in order to make full use of these solutions. While often utilized as a method to integrate team members in a virtual team environment: "a Web-based groupware application on the company's intranet that allowed asynchronous conversation threads as well as posting of documents, links, and surveys"(Kerber & Buono, 2004, para.11), these solutions are effective in any application because they facilitate communication across a commonly utilized medium in any organization or institutions such as the University of Phoenix which is the common PC. Team leaders and members can employ these IT enabled solutions as a method to conceptually tie team members together into a more cohesive unit and, at the same time, to more effectively monitor communication and progress within the team's mandate and that is what we as a group have accomplished."
