Personal Perspective PaperSubmitted to:Leslie Ann DunnMBA 500University of PhoenixRoger MorrowMay 15, 2006 I graduated from high school in 1981, there were no computer classes offered. At that time computers were something that was not for the average person to own. I attended college in the years to come where there were eventually computer classes offered.
Tclasses were focused around program writing. When I had a paper to write for a class, I would go to the library for hours on end and haul large books back to my dorm room.When I decided to finally work on my MBA at the age of 42, I discovered that college was not like I remembered. I found I had the option of working on my MBA in the comfort of my home around my busy schedule. Attending class is what ever fits into my busy lifestyle.
I was amazed at all the learning tools that were available to me as I started my program. One of the most amazing tools was the eResource. Exploring the eResouce brings unlimited. The eResource will provide me with all the resources that I will need through out my MBA program. In using the eResourcesite I am not only able to get reading assignments and simulations for that classes, but be able to maintain my progress in the entire program.The library is unlimited to the resources that are available to me.

This is why the first team assignment is to develop a team charter together.Team Member Skill Inventory Learning Team Goals Ground RulesConflict Management (UOPHX)Using this criteria, the team can hopefully all agree on the goals, ground rules, and how conflict will be managed when or if it arises.
