Successful team management ensures organised and goal-oriented team cooperation so that all tasks in the project are completed on time and within budget.
Team management is the basis of a project. The success of your team management determines whether you will complete the tasks in the desired quality, within the set time frame and at the planned cost.
The success of your entire project stands and falls with competent team management.
Team management refers to the team organisation. This includes everything that ensures the functionality of a team. What do you have to consider when putting together your team?
For this you should assign each team member a clear role, task - and therefore also responsibility.
With flawless communication, you ensure that each team member is fully informed about changes or adjustments in the project and can immediately adapt his or her activities to the changed circumstances. If your team management is well thought-out and professionally structured, it will support your teamwork, which is necessary to achieve your project goals.
How a successful project team should be put together depends on the specific requirements of your project. However, some friction - and often serious problems in the team structure - can be avoided if you follow the guidelines below:
The preferred team structure is one of the fundamental decisions in team building. A distinction must be made between the diversified - according to age, gender and cultural background - and the homogeneous structure.
Both structural models have their advantages and disadvantages.
The right team size is crucial for successful team management in project management.
Smaller, goal-oriented teams have the advantage that there is no - or hardly any - overlapping of competences. This ensures both a clear and simple flow of information and a low potential for conflict between team members.
What the appropriate team size is depends on the respective project task and must therefore be decided from team to team.
In a team, the ability to work together with other people is of utmost importance.
It is therefore advisable for you to choose an employee - with the same professional qualifications - who has a high level of social competence and can approach other people.
If a special area of expertise is required in a special field, which only allows a limited selection of personnel, you should pay special attention to the introverted employee. You can achieve this, for example, by providing them with a quiet and secluded workplace where they can carry out their work undisturbed.
