  • Teams are required to attend the kick-off session.
  • Teams are required to meet regularly once every two or three weeks.
  • Each team consists of members based in North America, Europe, and Asia. Finding a time for regular meetings that works for everyone will be a challenge but remember one of the purposes of the Global Research Marathon is connecting people from all over the world.
  • One group member needs to be physically present at each conference.
  • There may be too many team members and not everyone was committed to the work. If there are team members do not contribute to the project, they can be let go. This is another reason for a big group size – not everyone in the team will make it through the final stage.
