Group 3: Teams

The subgroups of the workplace are Teams. Workers have to be assigned to at least one team to be part of the workplace. If you are a worker and want to work, your team group, for example, the design team, is your home base to go to. The subgroups of the team are Roles. Workers can apply for a role in a team, for example UX designer. They do that by choosing one of the objectives, the subgroups of Roles, and write an application to their team captain on how they want to contribute to that objective. Objectives are set out by the team captain and are always verified by the PLT. An example of an objective could be: create the front end design of the Android app.

Team captain

Every team has a captain that is chosen by its own team. The captain represents the team in the Project Leaders Team, the team that is in charge of the workplace. The captain has a lot of authority and responsibilities and is the only person in the team that gets a fixed payout per month. The main job of the captain is to make sure the team is effective, organized and accomplishes objectives. The captain is also responsible for the team budget and delegation of the work among the team. The team itself keeps the captain in check by having the power to question his leadership at the Project Leaders Team.
