Studies consistently shown that as project complexity increases there are significant advantages in assembling a team who are collaborative, integrated and focused on the project outcomes. So how do you go about setting up a team to work this way? Success lies in the implementation of good process, but also in establishing the right collective mindset and behaviours.
Traditional project management practices have tended to concentrate on task completion with the expectation that good behaviours will automatically follow. The reality is that poor project performance is more likely to come from a failure in team relationships than from the lack of a good project execution plan. As project complexity increases so does the need to pay attention to the conditions that will encourage relationships to thrive.
Many project leaders recognise the value in establishing a strong team environment, but are unsure as to what constitutes best practice in this area. This two-day course is therefore designed to provide you with the tool kit that you need to get your project off to the best possible start.
Through a series of short lectures, teamwork sessions and peer group discussion you will learn how to develop your own project setup plan and avoid common errors that inevitably lead to problems further downstream.
