Project Management is a team sport; projects are rarely implemented by a single individual. But the minute you bring two, three, not to mention fifty or hundreds of team members together, you open yourself up a range of potential group dynamics issues. In fact, the pressures of time and budget, along with the drive to get results, can lead to bullying and other unproductive behavior. It’s up to the project manager to set the tone, define standards, establish lines of communication, and support the individuals as well as the group as a whole. Three experts on Teamwork and how it relates to Project Management – Paul Pelletier, Lisa DiTullio, and Rami Kaibni – discuss how to nurture and manage your team for optimal functionality and quality results.
