Teambuilding styles and their impact on project management results

The use of project management tools and techniques do not guarantee project success. A more critical variant in successful project management is the project managers style or approach to teambuilding. This article presents Decide-X, a sociological tool that identifies individual work-style preferences, and emphasizes complementary skills and compatibility. The four primary individual styles are: 1) Reactive Stimulator (RS); 2) Logical Processor (LP), Hypothetical Analyzer (HA), and Relational Innovator (RI). Preferences for planning, organizing, controlling, and leading reflect a project managers style or teambuilding approach. The Project Management Application Typology (PMAT) correlates these four styles with four environments: Dynamic (DE), Static (SE), Low Structure (LS), and High Structure (HS). PMAT can be used to place the right person in the right position by correlating the environment type with the project managers teambuilding style.
