Unit VIII Article Critique

Research and select two professional journal articles that directly relate to Team Building or Improving Team Performances. A critical assessment of the articles is expected for this assignment. Keep in mind, the Research Database found in the CSU Online Library is a great source for quick exploration of thousands of articles. The articles should be current (less than three years old).

In preparation, follow the guidelines established below:

? Find two articles that pertain to team building or improving team performance and annotate (in your own words) as you read.

? Note the author's main points and thesis statements.

? Write a critique encompassing both articles into one document.

? Reference both articles in APA format.

? The entire document should be typed according to APA style (double-spaced).

? The Article Critique should be approximately two to three pages in length.

? All journal articles selected should be at least four pages in length.

? The Article Critique is due at the completion of Unit VIII.

? Author's name

? Book/Article title and source
