Transforming Your Project Team from Good to Great
Managing Without Authority to Motivate Diverse Project Teams
Today’s project teams tend to be diverse, and are often formed based on the availability of team members rather than the skills they bring to the table. As a result, project teams tend to be filled with people who, while technically very good in their areas of expertise, may lack some of the soft skills needed to execute projects successfully. Getting great results from your project teams isn’t easy, but the trick is making sure that your project team members have all of the skills they need to set them (and your initiatives) up for ongoing success.
Transforming Your Project Team from Good to Great discusses:
- The skills project managers need to become project leaders
- The keys to managing without authority and motivating diverse teams to deliver
- Communication skills that project managers need to get work done
Team members without project management training are increasingly given pivotal roles in managing projects. Project-based work is changing, and training may be required to better execute.
