Code of Conduct ERM Project – AIG Objective: This Code of Conduct is a set of guidelines designed to assist the team in completing the ERM project as fairly and efficiently as possible. As responsible students we are interested in obtaining a top grade while advancing our knowledge in the area of Risk Management. The team members have all agreed to work diligently to move the project along at a pace greater than required by the course. This will afford additional time should we have difficulty with a particular part of the project to ensure we meet all deadlines and requirements. If we do not have any unexpected delays, we anticipate completing the project early and being awarded extra time off to enjoy our other interests. Team Members: Cindy Depina Christopher McClean Scott Vickery Mary White Communication: It is important to the group that we treat each other with respect and each member is involved equally in the team project. We have collaboratively agreed that communication will be handled primarily through email. In the event a need arises the members of the team are willing to address difficult challenges by conference call when necessary. We have created a Wiki page, NECBMSF515 for developing our project to share ideas and to coauthor our report, however, this is a content site for our team and not a direct method for communication. Handling of Assignments: The project is broken out into five parts; developing this code of conduct plus the four assignments. The leader for each part will be responsible for developing a list of tasks needed to complete each assignment. The other members will volunteer on a first come basis and will be responsible for completing the tasks within the time frame specified by the assignment leader. Once the individual elements of the assignment are completed it will be the responsibility of the team leader to collect, aggregate, and edit the content, post it for the team to review, and finally to post the assignment to the class portal following the guidelines provided by the college. Leadership Assignments: Code of Conduct - Scott Vickery Part 1 - Cindy Depina Part 2 - Chris McClean Part 3 - Mary White Part 4 - Scott Vickery (This is subject to change at the team's discretion) Team Members Responsibilities: It is expected that each team member will hold himself or herself accountable for completing his or her fair share of each assignment and that no issues will arise. However, in the unlikely event that a team member does not complete their part of the project, misses a deadline, or is unresponsive, the other team members will continue to reach out to that individual, while also developing a back-up plan to make sure the assignment is completed fully and on time. If the problem persists the team will discuss the issue together to resolve the matter, and if the situation becomes untenable the team may reach out to the professor for guidance. All issues will be handled in a professional and appropriate manner. Ethics: Team members are expected to treat one another with respect at all times and to meet the ethical standards as required by the college. Unethical practices will not be tolerated. Students are expected to contribute in a meaningful way and create original work for the team and the class. Any suspected plagiarism will be brought to the attention of the group and reviewed with the suspected team member for clarification. Continued problems will be brought to the attention of the professor.
