Team Workings & Functions
Every member of this class should be a member of at least one team but can also be on every team they have time/interest in. Each team will agree on a team lead.
If issues arise within a team, they are managed within the team under the direction of the team lead. If the issue cannot be resolved, it can be escalated to the chairs. If it still is not resolved, it is brought to Alain.
Teams are expected to collaborate. For instance, if the Motion Team needs brand graphics to use in After Effects, they’ll request them with specifications from the Branding Team.
Grad Show Chairs
Two people are elected to oversee all activities as well as coordinate and attend meetings with team leads. They meet with Alain to provide progress updates.
Chairs may opt out of participating in any teams. They act as overseers of and liaisons between all the teams leads and report to Alain.
Team leads are managers of the teams. They’re not the ones doing all the work. They delegate and to their part of the work. They ensure that everyone in the team does their fair share of work. If someone’s not pulling their weight, Alain finds out…
