How do Teams work?

  • Teams undertake the actual work Tasks of the NAASC (some tasks might be undertaken by single individuals)
  • Teams are led from within a Group, but can have Team Members from other Groups
  • Teams can be temporary or long-term
  • Team Leads are responsible for the successful implementation/performance of the Task

EXAMPLE

Team Lead: Tony

Task Description: Operate the helpdesk: staffing schedules, ticket triage, ticket responses, knowledgebase articles, interfaces with other ARCs.

Team Members: Most members of NAASC will be called on to staff the triage, answer tickets and write knowledgebase articles. They are all members of the Helpdesk Team.
