Spartan Robotics Team 971 Leadership Manual
by: Nuttyman54

The 2006-2007 version of the team leaders’ handbook.

A comprehensive manual detailing all the duties of the team leaders, with tips and suggestions from past years. It is intended to be updated each year by the outgoing leaders. Questions are welcome.

Woo that IS pretty comprehensive.

I didn’t read the entire thing with a fine toothed comb, but I did notice some things about the Chairman’s as I scrolled through…

The length is limited to 10,000 characters with spaces (not 1500 words) and the 4 images have to be a maximum of 1 MB (not GB - though that would’ve been nice!).

Good job on your manual and see you at the SVR!

This is a great resource. I am working on a similar document for next year, and you’ve covered many areas that I haven’t even considered yet.

-No L

wow so detailed. it makes my head hurt… but in a good way…:stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks for the comment. I’ll notify this year’s leadership to fix it.

Also, in reference to TechnoL’s post, anyone is welcome to borrow, copy or modify parts from this manual for their own use, as long as credit is given where it is due.

Wow! How long did it take to write that?

I’ve had a manual in mind for a while. I haven’t had time to work on it yet, but I think one thing that will help me write 90 percent of the manual itself is to just keep a log of events and tasks that come up throughout the year.

I started writing this in late May (as my senior year was winding down). It was about 75% complete by August. I finished it during school breaks in October and November, so overall it took about 4 months.

Since this was not a planned endeavor, but rather a spontaneous idea post-Atlanta, I had to do most of the writing from memory, but I did have help from the USFIRST site, CD and my team archives for the history sections, as well as from many of my team members. Collectively, we managed to remember almost all of the important details (there have been very few times when someone has asked me for information that was not in the manual or newly organized team archives)

It should also be noted that many of the documents listed in the appendices are included in digital form on an accompanying disk.

The current leadership has been taking notes, like you mentioned, and will be adding their new information to the manual over the summer
