Obviously, you want to review the
previous work of the potential team
members and ensure they do good
work. More importantly, the potential team member needs to be greatly
intrigued and interested in creating
that particular product and achieving the team's goals. They should
like challenges and be able to overcome them.

Good Communication
Lanes
You can build a dream team, but
they can't function if there aren't
good communication lines. From a
project management software, email
system to online video conferencing
(if team members are not in town)
needs to be set up.

Empower the Team

Less Focus on Results

Company policy and red tape is the
fastest way to frustrate a project
team. It can make it difficult to get

Ensure your business's policies find
a balance that does not have too

You have bought them together to
achieve something and you need to
give them the power to do so.

It will get done when it will get done,
as long as the whole team is motivated and working on it. If you put
too much emphasis on results, then
you will drain the joy out of the job for
the team. As long as they are making
progressive steps towards achieving
the goal within a reasonable time
frame, the team will be fine.
Building an ambitious, driven and
passionate team is just the start. You
have to ensure that they survive and
are nurtured so that they can deliver
on the targets, so keep these points
in mind.

Rewards
Rewards and keeping the team motivated is extremely important when
the project can take up months,
a year or more to accomplish.
Don't think of rewards in terms of
awarding individuals in the team,
rather, the whole team needs to be
rewarded together.
It can be as simple as outings at the
office, gifting each other or company
