How to maximize group performance as the PM

As PM, how many times do you get to hand pick your project team? Never, at least not in my experience. So how do you manage and maximize the performance of a group of people that don't know each other and don't report to you?

  • Understand individual goals and establish group goals... your goals are not necessarily everyone else's goals.
  • Identify and understand each group member's strengths and weaknesses... diversity will make your group stronger.
  • Assign work/tasks based on strengths/capability, not in order to balance the workload to be fair... dividing work "evenly" will decrease performance and increase frustration.
  • Understand that individual workloads will always be different...different skills are needed at different phases of the project.
  • No secrets, no surprises...communicate, communicate, communicate.
