Focus on just one project team as you run down the checklist.
These are three big reasons why project teams fail. Avoid these. The short white paper The Challenge of Leading Over-Worked and Under-Performing Project Teams gives you more on these three pitfalls.
- Dumping Instead of Delegating
- Giving Effective Teams Just One More Project
- Not Taking Time to Evaluate Progress
If this checklist was helpful, then I encourage you to use it to help you structure the work for all of your other project teams. The article The Challenge of Leading Over-Worked and Under-Performing Project Teams includes a link to A Contract with Other Leaders. I believe that a very informal contract can provide an easy and practical framework for you to engage in conversations with your project leaders.
If, after you’ve completed this checklist, read the article, and looked over that simple contract, you still have questions – give me a call. 703 525-7074 or firstname.lastname@example.org
