Part II: Projects and project teams > Unit summary: Projects and project teams

Chapter 6. Unit summary: Projects and project teams

Topic A In this unit, you learned that there are four phases in a project’s lifecycle: development, idea generation and selection, implementation, and review, and that each of these phases must be considered when implementing a project. You also learned that there are four factors that must be considered when teams review a project to determine its success. These factors include the project’s objectives and costs, as well as the satisfaction level of those affected and the success of meeting the deadline for the project.
Topic B Finally, you learned that when an organization develops temporary needs that are outside the scope of the responsibilities of individual employees, the organization often forms project teams. Then, you learned that there are five types of project teams. In addition, you learned that project teams go through the same four phases a project does. During development, the team members are usually tentative. In the idea generation and selection phase, the team begins to coalesce with certain individuals establishing themselves as leaders. During implementation, team members begin to withdraw as they see the project coming to an end. In the review phase the team members are getting ready to move on to the next assignment. You also learned that project teams should use a process to stay organized and focused. You learned about the pitfalls you might encounter including a lack of faith or trust, disagreement over standards, scheduling issues, and resistance to feedback, and you learned methods to address these pitfalls.
