Course Description

This course will help you learn to know and manage your team.

The first lesson will explain how to identify the elements of a team by understanding who the players are. We’ll discuss how understanding the interactions within the team can make you an effective manager.

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?

Once the above questions 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, the management styles you will use to coach them, and the types of feedback you will provide them with.

You’ll learn what resources are needed and how to allocate and track those resources in a productive manner. You will learn how to keep your team excited and motivated. Lastly, we will discuss how to close out a project by debriefing your team, celebrating success, and giving an assessment of progress with suggestions for future projects.
