Hi guys ,I have the new project management knowledge to us again, Today I am going to talk about managing project team that is one of the very important step that all project managers have to do to complete the project. 

What Is A "Team"? "

     Team is a group organized to work together to accomplish a set of objectives that cannot be achieved effectively by individuals."

Characteristics of a Team
  • It must be an awareness of unity on the part of all its members.
  • It must have interpersonal relationship and the members must have a chance to contribute, learn from and work with others.
  • The member must have the ability to act together toward a common goal.
Building the Project Team      'Team Building' is the process of motivating and enabling that group of people to reach their goal and These are some stages involved in team building:
  • To clarify the team goals
  • To build ownership and commitment to those goals across the team
  • To identify those issues which inhibit the team from reaching their goals
  • To address those issues, remove the inhibitors and thereby enable the goals to be achieved
     And we can also say that in any project we need to get the right team together in order to deliver a successful result and we always have the phases of team development are commonly referred to as Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing.   Managing Project Teams           Project teams need to be capable of operating flexibly, responding quickly to new requirements and ultimately be capable of delivering clearly identifiable outcomes. This do focuses on what we can do to make our project team achieve its outcomes successfully. It considers issues such as what makes an effective and successful project team, the different leadership styles, how to keep our team motivated, and the project life cycle and how to assess our project team competencies
