For this assignment, select one of these process opportunities. Your task, as sponsor and team facilitator, is to develop a robust team charter (see exhibit 7.2 in our textbook).

  • First, research the opportunity you selected to understand how progressive organizations have addressed the challenge.
  • Next, determine and justify the size of the team and identify the specific positions (to include physicians) that you would include as members. Describe the role of each member.
  • Then, craft a robust problem statement and team charter.
  • Finally, create a draft agenda and Gantt chart or timeline (select just one) for the first meeting of the team.

The paper should be well-written and meet the following requirements:

  • Four pages in length(excluding title page, reference list and exhibits)
  • The team charter, draft agenda, and Gantt chart / timeline should be included as exhibits in the paper, but thoroughly discussed and justified in the body of the paper.
