All business teams require a mix of individual and group work. This study seeks to identify the levels of individual and group participation necessary to successfully complete projects in the undergraduate classroom. The levels of effort based on time, graded output, and satisfaction will be indexed on a scale from cooperative (working individually) to collaborative (working together). Initial analysis suggests that teams which predominately cooperate are often more successful than teams that predominately collaborate.
