Ottawa University New Business Venture Development Project

Develop your group’s new business venture. This must be a brand new business that manufactures a product. Include your company name and describe the products or services offered, basic logistics, etc.

This is a group project and all group members are expected to contribute to the project. Read this article for some Success Strategies for Teamwork in the Online Setting. Please define your group roles and include a description of them in your deliverable. Examples of possible roles include (you may create your own roles and responsibilities):

  • Leader: Makes a list of the project content and distribute it to the group members. Your main role is to make sure that all members of the group are responsible for an equitable share of the project.
  • Organizer: Schedules group meetings, communicates time lines, and keeps the group on task. You are in charge of making sure the group meets the deadlines.
  • Editor: Integrates each persons’ work into a seamless document. Edits grammar, spelling, formatting, and ensures there is no replication of information.
  • Peace Keeper: Makes sure that participants are working together and getting along. When conflicts arise, you use good conflict management skills to work through it together. If a resolution cannot be found amongst your group, you make an appointment with the instructor to find a resolution.

Collaborate with your group using your group discussion board. Your participation in the group discussion is mandatory and is how I will assess your overall group progress and individual contributions. All graded work must be submitted to the Group Deliverable #1 assignment. One group member should submit your final deliverable for grading.

Your deliverable should be 4-6 pages in length. Make sure to include a title page and references section (that do not count towards the length of your assignment).
