INTRODUCTION• Human resource is vital and inseparable component of any project, so its management and proper utilization is one of the primary task in any project.• The management of a project involves rather more than just the mastery of Gantt charts, network analysis and other mathematical techniques. It includes the creation and management of a team of people who are given the task of handling the project from its inception to successful completion.• The benefits of effective teamwork are clear to those who have experienced the synergy created by a team who work together well, who cooperate with each other, and who are all committed to the project.
How?• One very important quality needed by a project manager is the ability to motivate the project team. Different people respond to various techniques of persuasion in sometimes very different ways, and it is necessary to know how to approach a particular individual, or group of individuals, in order to optimise your likelihood of success in motivating them into appropriate action.• Money and Respect ( accountability ) proved to be most motivating factor in human history for execution of any task.
