Working with Preassigned Staff

Project team members are often preassigned to a project for a number of reasons:

• Availability of the individual

• Promised as part of a competitive contract

• Required as part of the project charter for an internal project

• Opportunity for the staff member to complete on-the-job training

Whatever the reasoning behind the assignment of the staff to the project, the project manager should evaluate the project team for skill gaps, availability to complete the project work, and expectations of the project team members. The project manager must address any discrepancies between the requirements of the project work and the project team's ability to complete the work.
