The ability to read the context and to integrate different sources of information represent pivotal elements to achieve and present innovative solutions.
The seminars focuses on the following topics:
- The skills of the future.
- Integrate knowledge through collaboration.
- Influence and conflict.
- Understand individual differences in team-based settings.
- Understand personal teamwork style (strengths and weaknesses).
- Effectively share information and deal with different opinions.
- Adapt the personal teamwork style to different contexts.
- Synthesize and select contents for developing a compelling presentation.
- Communicate effectively on the basis of the audience’s characteristics.
- Face-to-face lectures
- Interactive class activities (role playing, business game, simulation, online forum, instant polls)

- Simulations: students are involved in team-based activities that require interaction and sharing of different ideas and perspectives.
|Continuous assessment||Partial exams||General exam|
Because of the active interaction and the continuous feedback (from peers and instructors), attending students are evaluated on the basis of their active and continuous contribution throughout the entire duration of the seminars (es. preparation of the presentation message, presentation design, peer feedback with other students,...)
- Final evaluation: pass/fail.
Non attending students are evaluated through a written exam (multiple choice) entirely based on the readings indicated in the "teaching material" section". The exam is aimed at evaluating students’ ability to recognize the main elements that characterize effective teamwork and influential presentations.
- Final evaluation: pass/fail.
Materials distributed in class (simulations) and instructor’s slides.
