We all need and thrive for successful projects. But what does it take to get there? There is no doubt that good project management is a critical success factor. But is it really sufficient? The author doesn’t think so. He claims that effective project management needs to have a solid foundation in project leadership AND team work. It takes a performing team to run a project successfully and it takes effective leadership to empower the team to do so. This is why team building is a decisive factor for project success.
Based on his experience, having managed projects of all sizes, from a few to 24,000 person days effort, in various industries, Thomas Juli identifies the five team leadership principles that build a foundation for effective team building. They include building a common project vision, nurturing team collaboration, cultivating team performance, promoting team learning and ensuring team delivery. These five principles encompass the core of effective leadership in a team. The lecture will present these five principles of effective project leadership and show how they can help build and manage a performing and winning team.
