Analyzing Team Connections Can Strengthen Project Bonds

For me, the best part of December is watching families interact while they shop or prepare for seasonal gatherings. When I observe how things get done among families and friends, it only takes a few minutes to determine who the leader of the group is, who follows orders, who has tight relationships and who feels a little detached from the group. In the same way, identifying bonds and behaviors on your project team can reveal insights that help you better manage team members—and the initiative as a whole. You might already have a sense of which team members are popular and which ones sow seeds of division, but you need data to back this up.
