Key points on PM teams

This article features an interview with Rick Barrera, keynote speaker at PMI's 2001 Seminars & Symposium, and well known expert on the concept of teams and leadership.He discusses the four basic team member styles (directors, socializers, relaters, and thinkers), and explains how each type's strengths and weaknesses can affect the dynamics of the project team.Because companies are no longer hierarchies, and because all work is now projectized, it is important that project managers understand these personal styles in order to recognize stress patterns, frame challenges, and in short, maximize their team members.The biggest recent business shift is in the way people organize, execute, and communicate.The project team that communicates best is the one most likely to function best.
