This book aims to support you (the student) and your peers working in project teams as part of your educational program. Problem-based learning is very popular at universities worldwide and often requires teams of students to work collaboratively on assignments provided by the teaching staff. Students (and most staff), however, haven’t received any (formal) training in teamwork.
This book provides a hands-on overview of all aspects relevant to student teamwork, including teamwork, project management and leadership.
So, take your academic projects to the next level and outperform yourself as a team and as individuals, because TeamWorks!

“Teamwork has become a basic component of most collegiate and graduate studies. It is also an important element for long-term career success. Yet, I have yet to nd a straightforward guide that helps students identify and work through various issues – until now! ‘TeamWorks’ is a pragmatic book, problem focused, and providing clear solutions. And since it is written by students for students, the style and tone, as well as the content, are perfect for students of all levels. In short, I strongly recommend ‘TeamWorks’ to faculty and students alike.”
Marc H. Meyer (2012), Robert Shillman Professor of Entrepreneurship & Matthews Distinguished University Professor, Northeastern University.

“There is a freshness to the material which captures the subject from the students’ perspectives. … I particularly liked the chapters ‘how to turn a Professor into a valuable asset’ and ‘how to lead, follow and coach in a collaborative environment of peers’. It is easy to see the benefits of such realistic experiences within a Master’s level programme. Participants learn a great deal that is transferable into professional life about leadership, group work, and perhaps most valuably about themselves.”
Tudor Rickards (2010), Professor of Creativity & Organizational Change , Manchester Business School.

"We wanted to develop a book that could provide students across the world with support in their academic teamwork. So, we asked 176 international master students to work in teams and to write the chapters of this book. The result is a remarkable book on student teamwork, co-created by students, for students."
Frido Smulders, Meike Brehmer & Han v. d. Meer (2010), TU Delft.

Bridging the gap between design and volume production

The interface between Design and Manufacturing forms a locus of frequent interpersonal conflict. Misunderstandings, unwelcome surprises and planning problems are the rule rather than the exception. Within companies that deliver consumer goods in large quantities to the market this interface is also the transition from exploration (seeking new business opportunities) to exploitation (profiting from those consumer products).

This thesis reports on a first exploration of the Design-Manufacturing interface on the level of the participants from both processes using the method of Grounded Theory. This book conceptually describes how these actors bridge the gap between Design and Volume Production and portrays their social process in detail. The insights presented here are to be seen as a social-interactive perspective on the process of product innovation and are complementary to the rational-analytic viewpoint that focuses on the material and tangibility of product and process.

The kind of research that this book presents reflects the increased attention of academic researchers towards the human dimension of the product innovation process. Over the last decade the focus of design researchers has widened from individual designers, via teams of designers towards design teams in corporate settings. This movement increasingly views design as a social process which connects the engineering sciences with the social sciences.
