Part of the Focus on Skills Series, this publication, 'Focus on Skills: Team Management Skills for Project and Programme Managers', explains the importance of team management in transitory teams that only exist for the life of a project or programme and how this affects team dynamic. It looks specifically at the pressures of managing teams which often have reporting lines outside of the Project/Programme Manager.

This publication also explains where team management skills are used set against the backdrop of the lifecycle of a typical project, for example, starting up/identifying a project or programme, intiating/defining a project or programme, managing delivery and closing a project or programme. The title explains how key aspects of the skill can be undertaken via setting roles and responsibility, influencing and motivating, creating a team environment and managing conflict/personality clashes.

Key features:

  • Provides practical help in the form of checklists for suggested tasks, templates for key documents and agendas for suggested meetings.
  • Contains a step-by-step guide to how the key skills within leadership can be demonstrated in different situations and is backed up by examples and anecdotes from project managers in different industry sectors in both the public and the private sector.
