It endorses the project’s goals and is committed to seeing the project delivered on time, within budget, and at optimum level of quality.

Ensure that every member of the team both contributes to and benefits from a team effort. 6. Cultivate a supportive environment 7. Align behavior of team members through rewards much as compensation.
  8. 8. Forming a Team Consider different selection method like: • Assignment = the sponsor selects member and invite them to participate. • Volunteering = individuals who feel highly interested in the work step forward and offer to become members. • Nomination = people with an interest in the project nominate individuals who have the right skills and in whom they have confidence. Review motivations for selection Look for the right skills set by; assessing needed skills then identify people with the require skills. Review assignments over time.
  9. 9. Build Team Culture Host a launch meeting = it allows members, leaders, sponsors meet face-to-face and know each other on a personal level. Select a decision-making method = to help the team agree on who will make such decisions and how will it unfolds. Like: Majority rule, Consensus, Small group, or Leader with input.
