Collaboration Effect in Project Teams

Collaboration

The biggest opportunity to improve a projects’ success is to develop collaboration skills in the team.

Moving from directives to cooperation is the single biggest momentum shift that a team can make in their capacity to work collaboratively.

The team gains greater clarity around the project’s purpose, their role in delivering that purpose, and how to work successfully with their colleagues.

Improving communication clarity, developing better problem-solving skills, and increasing accountability; all help to drive project success.

Moving a team from the directive state to the cooperative state of collaboration can be a game-changer for any project.

Project Purpose

Building a multi disciplined project team that really works starts before the project does.

It requires people to be aligned on purpose and have both the will and skill to execute.

It requires processes that are understood and consistently applied.

It requires practices that make the flow of information easy.

Start with the project purpose and build the team and structure from there.
