Improvement Performance Outcome
Projects Implementation When talking about a new vision for the team, the new vision of the projects implementing must be defined, because projects are enactus main purpose, projects vision must change concentrating on certain locations is a must to reach remarkable changes, and assure the team improving the quality of life and standards of living of the targeted group and to assure that the team resources are effectively employed.
Learn your team members’ individual interests and talents. Understanding the unique composition of your team will help in project selection. Some teams gather information on individual members through an informational form completed upon joining the team. Additional knowledge on whether or not they are engaged in volunteer networks, other associations, and/or simply know where there may be a need that enactus can fulfill are all valuable pieces of information. Based on individual skills and talents, you can then carefully coordinate project teams and ensure that talents of all team members are effectively employed. Outcomes desired and how to measure the project’s success in improving the quality of life and standard of living for others. The team must clearly identify the measurement tools that will be used. Additionally, a ‘wish list’ of outcomes-desired can be created. In regards to improvement in Quality of Life, which social, cultural, and emotional circumstances of the beneficiaries will the project influence? In regards to Standard of Living, which physical, financial, and environmental circumstances will be changed as a result? The ‘wish list’ here will strictly state the final life-changing outcomes that will.
Specific tasks and corresponding deadlines required for project completion. Once the planning phase is complete and timelines are set, teams can move forward with the implementation phase.
Main Advantages of the brainstorming sessions:
To teach the new members the concepts of Enactus and criteria of the projects. To get new ideas for projects. To raise commitment of the new members and improve their personal skills. Create the spirit between the new members and increase team work.
Main Disadvantages of the current brainstorming sessions:
1- Most of the ideas that results in the brainstorming are not strong enough. This is due to lack of experience of the new members. 2- Not all the new members gain the enough experience or skills during the brainstorming sessions and these mainly depends on the manager who is leading the session.
1- We will not begin with the brainstorming sessions. We will give the new members task or mission to explore our old projects and see our impact. This will have three advantages:
Raising their commitment as they are seeing the impact directly. Teach them easily the concept of Enactus as there will be a open discussion after this task to talk about how this project affected the society and how this project meets the criteria of Enactus. Create the spirit between the new and old members. For example, the old members of Souq or Troos will discuss how they begin to implement the project. They will mention the obstacles that they faced in the stage of implementation and how they overcome these obstacles. This will create strong bond between members and raise commitment.
Other task will be not exploring but finishing the work in our old projects such as 16624 or campaign in Souq to convince the street venders to enter their booths. This will add another advantages that we will increase the impact of our old projects and finish some old projects that don’t need a lot of effort.
2- The managers of the committee will make brainstorming for new projects as they are qualified and have the enough experience to think in projects that can meet Enactus criteria. This will ensure reaching to strong ideas for projects. 3- There will be a brainstorming sessions for the new project members if needed. If we see that we need more ideas for projects, we will make brainstorming sessions but in more professional way. The style of the brainstorming sessions will be the same as style of our meetings that will be discussed later on in the plan.
Board of Consulting Board of consulting was created last year and this year we must assure maximizing it's effect were a lot of enactus bue student have graduated this year with a huge experience and commitment that will give a tremendous asset to the team the high board will chose the members of the board of consulting according to there skills and experience • • • • • •

They will provide mentorship and guidance for your team, advice on projects, an introduction of your team to other leaders in the community, access to needed resources, and critiques for your presentation before the actual competition and we are looking forward to increase our business advisors.
Public Relations Public relations started last year in redefining its vision and mission but we are looking forward for more, The blast that the public relations team would give the enactus BUE by the new vision and mission is the first step towards perfectness. Firstly the public relations team should work on increasing the publicity of the team in the university and delivering a full picture of the team achievements, projects, goals and spirit inside the university these missions will help the fund rising team and operation and logistics in completing their planed jobs. Secondly the public relations team should work on the media coverage of the team projects of the past year to increase the team engagement with community to increase the awareness of the community to enactus BUE's projects and the team it's self.
Which would increase enactus BUE community networks, would help connecting the team with Leading business, educational and civic organizations in the community who have the same goals and common purpose. The media coverage would also help in making a better picture about the team for the university.

Working Strategy The main purpose of this section is to show you they strategy which i will be using during the coming year in order to make the most of our opportunities. We will work on enabling and encouraging team members to work together effectively to deliver great impact which will affect people lives.
• Clearly stated and commonly held vision and goals. Our team goals are developed through a group process of team interaction and agreement in which each team member is willing to work towards achieving these goals.
• • • • • •
• Leadership is distributed and shared among team members and individuals willingly to contribute their resources as needed.
Team Development A team is a living and dynamic entity. It could progress from an early to a mature phase, independent of the nature of the team. Our next phase is the performing stage. In this phase our team has achieved harmony, defined its tasks, worked out its relationships, and we should be producing results. Leadership will be provided by the team members best suited for the task at hand. Members have learned how to work together, manage conflict and contribute their resources to meet the team's purposes. We don’t aim to fix or build a particular team at a particular moment in time. We are working to create a deep connection of the dynamics of people working together to achieve success. A true team development focuses on individual action, feeling and accountability rather than on vague actions of team. Team Development benefits • Team members will maintain their improved effectiveness in the face of difficulties and continue to develop • Sustainable improvements in performance. We align the changes to both the short term and long term performance of the team, and directioning the capabilities of its members to which it belongs. • Success that can be measured I believe it is vital to agree clear success criteria so that subsequent evaluations are clear and focused. We ensure that each committee determines appropriate, challenging targets that will enable it to measure success.
We will sustain our team effectiveness through
• Role clarity, particularly at the beginning.
• Workload sharing during the team’s lifespan to facilitate the accomplishment of tasks. • Team decision making involves a process that encourages active participation by all members during the team’s lifespan. It helps to build commitment. • Problem solving, discussing team issues, and assessing team effectiveness are encouraged by all team members. • Performance monitoring: the team members need to monitor each other's task execution and give feedback during task execution. Feedback is freely given as a way of evaluating the team's performance . • Team self-correction is the process in which members engage in evaluating their performance and in determining their strategies after task execution.. • The social environment is open and supportive with a focus on learning. Conflict is not suppressed. Team members are allowed to express negative feelings within the team which is managed and dealt with by team members. Dealing with and managing conflict is seen as a way to improve team performance.
• Are willing to cooperate to reach common goals.
Almost as certain as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, all teams go through stages as they develop. What does vary is how long each stage takes.
A team work is an individual member’s understanding about what is needed for a team to be successful. Each team member comes to a team with a predetermined picture of how teams work that is influenced by prior experiences.
How can you select the right team for a project? Having the right core team can make a great progress. Therefore, great care should be taken when selecting team members. Using the following elements we will be able to touch the improvements during the shortest time period.
• Team size • Keep your verbal and nonverbal language on the same page. This limits confusion. • Overall team composition • Team member selection and exclusion criteria • Compliment team members on good ideas and suggestions. • Member recruitment process Team size • Everyone has a chance to speak. Encourage team members to express opinions and share ideas.
Team size We were never aiming for large number of members who don’t actually have effective existence within the team. Recommended size is a team of 3-12 members in order to work faster and tend to produce results quickly. While creating sub teams to operate effectively. Overall team composition We will focus on a team well-rounded who includes a mix of members having a wide range of experience and skills. Our team member selection and exclusion criteria mainly depend on those people who are able to work well together for the project to succeed. When selecting team members, give preference to individuals who are: • • • • • • •
Concerned about and committed to the common Enthusiastic & Optimistic Creative, flexible and open minded Proactive Good team players Respect the values, beliefs and opinions of others Relate to and interact effectively with individuals and groups
Four Guidelines for Effective Communication • Focus on the behavior or problem, not on the person. People become defensive when criticized personally. • Keep your verbal and nonverbal language on the same page. This limits confusion. • Compliment team members on good ideas and suggestions. • Everyone has a chance to speak. Encourage team members to express opinions and share ideas. Don’t let specific team members dominate the conversation. Ideas are lost this way.
• • • • • •
Decisions made by multiple individuals who openly share data, opinions, and experiences are almost always better, more teams to solve innovative, longer lasting decisions that those made by a single individual.It’s because of the diversity of experiences and opinions!
Problems come in many forms. Regardless of the form of the problem, our teams commonly did not know where to begin or how to proceed to solve it. Consequently, we choose to go through trial and error a little stumbling here and there they may try different approaches until something works or it doesn’t.
The process in some cases is harder because team members see things differently. But if everyone thought the same way, then the decision would not be very innovative at all. By talking about it, the team will be exposed to new possibilities.
In organizations problem-solving which is a daily activity in our teamwork which we start finding solution by our selfs depending on our personal experiences. As a team of number of members each of us have a different background built upon what problems we have been exposed to before and as a result we develop our skills but in order to before efficient and time consuming.
This process either Compromise or Consensus, our team always used to compromise to find a solution which satisfies most of the members but, I chose to use the consensus technique. What is a Compromise? A compromise is one way of arriving at a decision that everyone involved can accept. The benefit to compromising is that it is expedient and allows the team to move on to the next task. The problem with compromising is that the outcome doesn’t meet anyone’s expectations. Still, some members are satisfied with it than the others. As a result, not everyone is 100% committed to the solution, so not everyone will work towards implementing the decision. When decisions are determined by majority or authority, those who dissent lose their commitment.
A methodology that teams frequently use is the Seven Steps of Problem Solving. This framework helps a team to figure out not only where to start but also where to touch base whenever it encounters an obstacle. Step1 : Identifying the Problem Knowing what is exactly the problem by eliminating any distractions . Step 2: The Current Process What did we reach till this problem came up? What should be the next step? What kind of delay affected us?
What is Consensus? Step 3 : Identify the root cause In a consensus, the various points of view of each member of the team are considered, discussed, compared, and discussed again until everyone sees all views from the top. We might not all agree on the same decision, but it is important that all team member opinions are all heard. The benefit to building consensus when making a decision is that everyone buys into the solution. This means that all team members will work towards making that solution work. The key to consensus building is steering the discussion away from “right versus wrong” arguments.
What are the possible causes of the problem? Which is most like? Step 4: Develop solution and Action Plan What are the suggested solutions? What are the suggested alternatives? Which is the best solution or alternative? On what basis we chose a specific solution Step 5: Implement Step 6: Evaluate Step 7: Reflect and act on learning
Partnerships & Co-operations Partnership is a voluntary collaborative agreement between two or more parties in which all participants agree to work together to achieve a common purpose or undertake a specific task and to share risks, responsibilities, resources, competencies and benefits. enactus BUE will focus on strengthening our relationship with other entities. During the next year we will be working with different entities wither NGOs or Sponsors. In order to gain their trust we will be working on creating a professional
Steps were already taken to start our powerful partnership. We were able to set a deal with rochester institute of technology (located in New york, USA) where Engineering enactus students started working on a research project for finding a solution to offer the basic needs which is low cast and can be implemented at the poorest areas in our society. These students are not just provided with support from University Professors but also they have started having a workshops at the rochester institute of technology, and setting a deal with north carolina state university entrepreneurship lab where our business students will increase their business skills where they will be able to help with this new experience and skills in implementing our projects. Academy Of Scientific Research and Technology which is ready to fund our projects which have scientific researches with millions of pound Also we were able to contact two of the biggest and oldest organizations in Egypt Masr El Kheir and Bank al t3am. They were willing and provided us with their full support, As for Masr El Kheri they we'r working with them since last year in al fayom in electrovoltex project and we will continue working with them in fayom and other projects which will meet enactus criteria ,as for bank al t3am they are willing to fund a lot of our projects for this year.
Winning Enactus special competition Aiming and working on wining first place at enactus Egypt special competitions as they represent a source of fund for our team and add's to enactus BUE's history.
Other Special competitions Enactus BUE has to get benefits from their projects more than that Enactus Egypt gives so this year Enactus BUE is registering in other competitions which Enactus BUE's project criteria's fits in the competition judging criteria. Winning those competitions would increase the team motivation, publicity and getting support from the university administration. Losing in worst cases would increase the team experience and negatively affect the team
National Competition Enactus bue has reached it's performing stage, winning the national competition again is a goal that we would never accept less than. We have a strong team that is ready win it again, and this year made it a lot easier when youâ€™re the champion it's much easier to do more co operations and partnerships which will help our team in to becoming stronger.
