Project teams

what have we learned?

Teamwork is integral to modern project management, but not all teams are equally productive. This article explores the differences between high- and low-productivity teams by posing some basic questions. Asking whether a team is really needed helps to flush out the degree of skills and experience that a project requires. Examining the different levels of teamwork is a way to separate effective teams from pseudo teams or name-only teams.

A number of strategies for developing star teams are discussed, including staffing and chartering the team and measuring and managing their performance.
