Project Teams, Second Edition: A Structured Development
A project team is critical to project success which in turn leads to success of an organization. Projects are routinely conceived and executed to operationalize strategic objectives of organizations. Managing a project is challenging, as project managers and project team deal with both internal and external challenges. Complicating it further, developing, managing, and leading teams for traditional and agile projects are quite different. Furthermore, virtual teams present additional challenges for managing global projects.
Additional challenges arise when many generations from Baby Boomers to Generation Y work together in the workplace today. A systematic structuring and developing project teams is critical for successful project performance and for a strong collaborative team effort.
