Establishing Project Teams

Project TeamProject management is not just about creating schedules and budgets. One of the more challenging aspects is bringing people together to solve problems and take advantage of new opportunities.

Before we get into the mechanics of ‘establishing a project team” it is useful to think about what a team is.  What are the defining characteristics of a team?  What sets a team apart from just a group of people? Just because everyone works together or in close proximity it doesn’t automatically follow that they belong to a team. Teams have five key defining characteristics that the project manager must be aware of  when establishing a project team and creating the right environment for the project team.
