Purpose: The purpose of this personal reflection is to study and analyse what makes a successful team in theory, and how Iwantapple, a newly started e-commerce company have done this in practice.
Methodology: The literature study are mainly printed sources. The literature review has been concluded in a theoretical reference chapter that was used as a foundation for the Empirical Section. I have studied what makes a successful team in theory and how Iwantapple managed to do this in reality. I have done so by using my partners and my own experiences throughout the master programme. Finally my observations at Iwantapple were compared and analysed with the Theoretical Framework in order to fulfil my purpose.
Theoretical Framework: The Theoretical Framework is developed from a Teamwork Quality Theory with a six-cornerstone model to ensure successful teamwork. The teamwork Quality framework is further supported by other adjacent theories to ensure the trustworthiness.
Empirical Evidence: Iwantapple is a newly started venture that will provide an online market place for second hand Apple-products. The team behind Iwantapple has been selected through a long progress to ensure its competitiveness on the market and its efficiency as a fully functioning team. The Empirical study is based on the experiences of the founding team.
Conclusions: Teamwork is important for a group of people to function; it is not the goals rather the people who are involved that are important. Most people know that good teamwork is important, but few might know the factors behind successful teamwork. The Teamwork Quality of Iwantapple very good, we can work together very well, we all have the intention of staying in the team, and we all contribute with different skills and abilities. (Less)
