Lack of Teamwork

Even with a cadre of strong technical people, if they do not operate as a team, the project is in jeopardy. The skills of the Project Manager are paramount here, as he or she must be able to forge a spirit of teamwork and cooperation. Today's systems are very complex and require day-to-day interactions of the members of the project. If these interactions do not take place, or are negative, the project suffers and loses ground. There are times, as well, that a PM must ''bite the bullet'' with a project person who is not able to be part of a team, preferring instead to be isolated, or act so as to represent a divisive force in a team effort. This should not be tolerated and decisive action is required to solve this type of problem. A variety of issues surrounding how to build a productive team are addressed in considerable detail in Chapter 6.
