You will want a strong and capable project team but there can only be one leader for it, and this is you. The project manager can often let their team members enjoy a good degree of freedom at work but there are times when they need to follow your instructions closely. You are the person who leads the work and who can see the overall plan. There will be times when they simply need to trust you even they don’t agree with you or don’t fully understand why they have been asked to do something. Of course, your part in this is to make sure that you give them clear instructions and make sure that they understand them as much as possible. We all work better when we know what is being asked of us and what the expected end results are.
Here is a typical pattern of recurring Project Team meetings...
Staffing and Teamwork
Many projects are beyond the capability of any one contributor. The time required to complete a project often means that several people must work on it together to meet the deadline. So, the project manager must assemble a project team. Together, the team members must have the skills necessary to accomplish the project goals. They must also have the needed resources, such as time, instruments, and technical support. Team members must be aware of each others roles and the resources each brings to the project. For each team member to achieve project milestones, all must agree on project goals and coordinate their efforts to meet project milestones.

The Project Manager develops the Project Plan with the team and manages the team’s performance of project tasks. It is also the responsibility of the Project Manager to secure acceptance and approval of deliverables from the Project Sponsor and Stakeholders. The Project Manager is responsible for communication, including status reporting, risk management, escalation of issues that cannot be resolved in the team, and, in general, making sure the project is delivered in budget, on schedule, and within scope.The Project Team is the group responsible for planning and executing the project. It consists of a Project Manager and a variable number of Project Team members, who are brought in to deliver their tasks according to the project schedule.On larger projects, some Project Team members may serve as Team Leads, providing task and technical leadership, and sometimes maintaining a portion of the project plan.
