  1. Good job, Pak Ardi… The only weak part was that in your problem statement, you were not clear that our objective or purpose for this exercise was not to determine which phase the project team was in but what LEADERSHIP STYLE you should be using.

    You need to be very careful to differentiate between the ANALYSIS METHOD (which in thiis case was the Tuckman Survey) and the OBJECTVE (which was to determine which leadership style was appropriate)

    Other than that, you followed the 7 step process very well and you met the minimum requirement of three references. Keep up the good work….
