Part of the Focus on Skills Series, this publication, 'Focus on Skills: Team Management Skills for Project and Programme Managers', explains the importance of team management in transitory teams that only exist for the life of a project or programme and how this affects team dynamic. It looks specifically at the pressures of managing teams which often have reporting lines outside of the Project/Programme Manager.
This publication also explains where team management skills are used set against the backdrop of the lifecycle of a typical project, for example, starting up/identifying a project or programme, intiating/defining a project or programme, managing delivery and closing a project or programme. The title explains how key aspects of the skill can be undertaken via setting roles and responsibility, influencing and motivating, creating a team environment and managing conflict/personality clashes.
