  1. Teamwork in a Research Setting Jared Oluoch and George Corser

  2. Teamwork

  3. Introduction • What is teamwork in a research setting? • Why is teamwork important? • Teamwork risks • An example: Jared and George

  4. What is teamwork in research? Many different types of teamwork… • Working together to understand a problem • Debating ideas • Playing Devil’s advocate • Brainstorming “what if” scenarios • Dividing up tasks to complete a project faster • Functional divisions: VANET v. trust/privacy • Technical divisions: finding papers v. programming

  5. Why is teamwork worthwhile? • Speed • Divide and conquer projects • Quality • Catch each other’s mistakes • Build ideas (two heads are better than one) • Communication • Back up others on the team

  6. Teamwork Risks • Unclear roles • Requires accountability • Requires flexibility to adjust to changing priorities • Differences of opinion • Requires clear “lead” decision maker, who must not waver excessively between priorities • Scheduling conflicts • Requires mutual commitment and perhaps designated time set aside

  7. Example: Jared and George • Analysis of system wide trust levels using various VANET trust models • Jared is leader • Tasks divided by technical duties • Jared writes • George programs • Work together daily in same office and debate issues as they come up

  8. Results • Jared could not have written all he has written without George’s programs • George could not have programmed anything without Jared’s prior and continuing research • Result: Paper is in advanced draft form • Result: Simulation software and Excel charts and graphs are done (two weeks)
