Project Management (a quick tutorial) - Project Staffing

Project Staffing

Most projects require a project team.  It is important to plan your staffing needs and identifying the required work effort.  Determine the level of effort required and determine the needed commitment level. 

Is there a match between the effort and level of commitment?

F  Voice of Experience – Project organizational chart

Develop an organizational chart for your project.  Often team members are assigned to a project without knowing their specific role.  An org chart allows the roles and responsibilities to be defined.  It will also define the communication path within your project. 

Will everyone support your project or compete for leadership?  This is especially important for senior managers as they are often outside the project structure, requiring special interaction and support.
