  1. OUTSTANDING first blog posting, Pak Fakhri!!! Good job!!

    You followed our 7 step process almost perfectly and you exceeded the minimum requirement for 3 references cited using APA format.

    Not sure if your analysis is or is not correct, so my suggestion would be to repeat this experiment in about 6 or 8 weeks to see if your assessment that your team is in the Performing stage at this point was or was not correct.

    Keep up the good work and looking forward to seeing your W2 posting.
