Event Details

Topic: Team Dynamics

Date: Thursday, December 7, 2017

Time: 12:45-2:30 p.m. (Registration and networking will be from 12:45 to 1:00 p.m.)

Location: Memorial Union (Check Today in the Union for exact room.)

Guest Speaker: Jessica Swenson from the Office of Talent Management in the Office of Human Resources.


Whether you are assigned to a team or get to pick your own team, there are some general stages that all teams go through: Forming. Storming, Norming, Performing.

Jessica will provide insights on each of these stages. Her presentation will be interactive with a brief get-to-know-you activity (to role model the Forming stage), followed by small group discussions about the different stages and sharing experiences. At the end, there will be time for questions and answers with the full group of participants, so people can ask questions about their own projects.

What is the WiCi Network?

The Wisconsin Continuous Improvement (WiCi) Network is a university community of practice that was formed to bring together anyone involved in or supporting continuous improvement efforts across campus, or anyone interested in learning, sharing ideas, or networking around the work of continuous improvement.

The Administrative Process Redesign (APR) unit was a sponsoring organizer of the WiCi Network, but the community has not been limited to those involved in APR projects. Whether you are actively engaged in an improvement project, assessing how to bring continuous improvement to your unit, or just interested in learning more, the WiCi Network has a lot to offer.

Join Us at a WiCi Event

The WiCi Network hosts multiple events throughout the year that focus on topics relevant to the practice of process improvement. Some examples of recent event topics include Project Selection, Creating a Project Charter, and Optimizing Your Networking Skills. Anyone is welcome to attend and learn first-hand what the community is about.

Program and registration information is posted to this website and provided via email to email subscribers. To ensure you receive information about WiCi and future events, subscribe to the WiCi email list.
