In order to be aware of your individual or team responsibilities, you should be aware of the process your team is going through. The team process is explained in the video about Gantt charts. This video explains how to successfully plan your project. The hand-out that follows, goes deeper into the need to formulate goals and how to do so, so that responsibilities are clear to each team member. Finally, a hand-out about the different phases of a team project is provided to make you aware of the different stages in which goals have to be achieved and what responsibilities come with these goals.
