“Teamwork divides the task and doubles the success.”

One of the core concepts that the Global MBA is built upon is Teamwork.

Each week we work in our allotted teams which are comprised of 6 to 7 individuals.  The challenge to compromise with your team mates increases because we work online rather than in person. IE makes it even tougher by making sure each team is diverse, with people living all around the world in many different time zones. So how do we make it work?? Well this is the challenge; this is what IE teaches us. In a real business situation it is rare to come across a time when people are free to sit down and discuss things with you. You will have to chase them, work around the clock, adjust your timings to a different time zone with only one thing in mind… completion of the project.

I am convinced IE’s grueling yet effective method will prepare us to lead and assimilate into all different kind of teams once we complete the GMBA!!

On a more exciting note, next week we will be going to Shanghai. Stay tuned as this GMBA train turns into a high speed rail and goes across continents to “Shanghai”.
