What is meant by 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?

Putting together the perfect team

For you, this means selecting the right people - available at the right time and suitably qualified - for the tasks at hand or, if necessary, actively recruiting them for the project.

Organise the assembled team in the best possible way

For this you should assign each team member a clear role, task - and therefore also responsibility.

Ensuring seamless communication within the team

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 to put your team together

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:

Decide on the team structure

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.

  • Effective communication, higher cohesion and thus lower fluctuation of members speaks for the homogeneous structure.
    However, the disadvantage is the low creativity in ideas and solution finding. However, this is not a problem as long as you entrust the team with a standardised task that does not require a creative approach.
  • One of the main advantages of the diversified structure is the wide range of knowledge from different specialist areas, which can lead to intensive discussions, balanced decisions and new approaches.
    The disadvantage, however, is a higher potential for conflict. As a competent and expert team leader, you can counteract this at an early stage.
 
Which team structure is to be preferred should therefore be decided on a case-by-case basis and according to the requirements of the respective project.


Determining the optimal team size

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.

Consider the personality of a prospective team member

In a team, the ability to work together with other people is of utmost importance. Team

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.

From now on, every project will be a successful project!
