This course includes two lessons: knowing your team and managing your team.
The first lesson will cover identifying the elements that make up a team by understanding who the players are. We’ll discuss what you need to do to be an effective manager in this situation and understand how team members interact with each other and within the team.
Next, we’ll discuss the channels used to facilitate effective communication. How often will you have meetings? How will they be structured? How long will they take? How will you measure quality and what standards will you set up to ensure that you track performance, tasks, deadlines, and milestones? All of these questions will be discussed so that you are fully prepared before you even get to know your team.
Once all of these factors are addressed, we will begin to understand how to actually manage a project team. We’ll address how to identify management needs, provide feedback, maintain team momentum, identify management challenges, and close out a project. You will need to think about the types of individuals to have on your team, what types of feedback you will provide, and the management styles you will use to coach the individuals.
You’ll learn what resources are needed and how you will allocate those resources and track them in a productive manner. We will discuss how to keep your team excited and motivated so your project stays on a successful track. To close out a project, we will discuss how to give your team a debriefing, ways to celebrate success, and how to give an assessment of progress with your suggestion of what needs to happen in the future.
