Project management team


One of the most important steps within a project is to carefully select and build a team which will manage project activities. Team building is not an easy job to do because it requires a lot of objectivity and competences. Before choosing a team for your project and starting group development, you obviously need to think about what kinds of specialists are required for your project, what responsibilities and roles are needed, and who will be in charge of a group leader. This article will help you go through the process of selection and show you necessary information about teams.

  • Planning collaborative efforts of project staff
  • Scheduling activities
  • Budgeting and cost estimation
  • Communications
  • Establishing and managing relationships with external organizations and suppliers
  • Monitoring and managing project risks

 Typically, itis broken down into a two-level structure which is usually headed up by a project management team leader, or a project manager. A leader is a person who plans, controls and manages activities of the team and takes an ultimate responsibility for the overall results produced by this team. This person is also responsible for developing team building strategies, increasing project management team motivation and morale, and arranging skill development trainings.

All the roles are usually outlined in a project management team charter, a formal document. It shows a hierarchy of the roles and their relationships. Such a chart is typically created and approved during project management team meetings.

 In order to build effective project management team communication and collaboration, task management software is required. Such software allows using various teambuilding techniques and project management methods that help organize group tasks, team-based activities and teamwork. VIP Task Manager is an example of task management software.

VIP Task Manager features Resource List view that allows adding new user accounts to your database. For each  team member, there can be created a user account protected by password and permissions. When a user tries to log in your database, he/she needs to type in a personal password. You can set permissions for each user so only permitted  team names will be allowed to review and edit information in the database.

 Resource List view has Roles Panel that helps you define your work structure by creating and assigning specific roles to members of your team. Resource List view simplifies identification and organization of team building activities because you can assign several different roles to a user.
