Project team becomes a good team when people do their best work and feel that they are accountable for the end results. It is better to focus the team on end results and build a team of professionals who clearly understand what is expected from them before they start working. There are two points a good project manager always remembers: the team members should do what they do perfectly, and they should be assigned to specific measurable results. Then, when project goes to an end, the project manager will be able to measure end results and conduct performance analysis.
