Pulling up poor performers

Just as one bad apple can spoil the whole barrel, one poor performer can burden an entire team. A poorly performing project team member can delay schedules, lower morale, blow budgets, overtax other team members and waste a manager's time. This article discusses how to protect a project from poor performers by learning how to lift them up. In doing so, it identifies four types of poor performers to watch out for on projects: the deadline misser, the bad communicator, the detail neglector, and the subpar prioritizer. Each section identifies the modus operandi of the poor performer, and then provides a turn-around technique. Accompanying the article is a sidebar listing the five signs when it's time to cut a poor performer loose.
