Week 7

Week 7

Bryan Nehl - Journal Observationswk7chart

We spent more team time working on the week 6 project. Part of that may be because we were/are working better as a team now.

Last week actual time to update project status for the web was 4 minutes. This week I'm revising my web time to 5 minutes.

Over half of this weeks time was spent in the writing of the paper and working with the team. The proportion would have been even larger if I wouldn't have had such a tough time working through the text reading. Again, the time spent directly writing the paper was a bit over three times the lecture time. The proportion spent writing the paper was also about the same as last week. This week I was reminded why I dislike Word so much. Spent a lot of time dealing with formatting and not with the content!

Next week is a short week so the team has already started to talk about and work on the assignment for the following week. At this time I do not see making any team process changes.
