Missions Goals and Roles

The team leader has the responsibility to clarify the overall mission of the team, the specific goals that are to be achieved, and the roles of the various team members. In a project context, these are often well known because, as a minimum, they are articulated implicitly in the project plan. The team may also be a ''task force'' within the project team, whose job it is to solve a particular problem. For example, such a team may be given the charter to maximize the effectiveness of interactions between the project team and the external interfaces with other entities or departments in the corporate enterprise (accounting, finance, contracts, human resouves, graphics, etc.). Failure to be clear about missions, goals, and roles usually leads to confusion, thrashing, and less than a positive attitude from team members.
