B1 Project Team Building and Performance Management

Course Introduction

Project management guru, Jim Lewis, once said: "In project management, everyone emphasize tools like CPM, EVA, WBS etc. However, we rarely see projects fail due to a lack of understanding on the use of such tools. On the other hand, we often see people problems causing project failures." These problems include:

  • Unable to find suitable team members.
  • Unable to gain team members' trust and commitment.
  • Unable to solve political problems between two superiors.
  • Unable to have effective communication among professionals with different backgrounds.
  • Unable to resolve project manager's dilemma of having responsibility but no power.
  • Unable to resolve team members' disputes and conflicts.
  • Unable to effectively deal with low performance team members.
  • Unable to boost team members' spirit.

You may be a good technical manager, great at solving technical related problems. However, for problems requiring negotiation, communication, coordination, accommodation or other people related issues, you may be at a total loss. It may cause you a great deal of headaches, frustration and stress. Through experience and frequent mistakes, you may be able to realize your own set of reasoning on this. However, facing each project's different environment, needs and organization, you will always need different attitudes and methods to deal with similar problems.

There is a saying: "leadership is inborn, not developed". However, natural born leaders are few, and many successful leaders actually can learn useful knowledge, techniques and abilities through formal or informal channels. As a project team leader or manager, do you have these required team management knowledge, techniques and abilities? If you are still bogged down in "solving people problems", this course will give you much help.
