This paper will focus on the development and establishment of an effective project team by identifying and clarifying specific problems when building a project team. The discussion starts off with a comparison between groups and teams. The characteristics of a project team are discussed to enable the reader to identify a project team. Specific criteria to evaluate the effectiveness of a project team are identified. When team members fail to understand each other, the project goals are not achieved. The project manager needs to ensure team participation in the formulation of project goals and he/she needs to motivate the team members to strive towards achieving the project goals. Conflict amongst the team members should be resolved swiftly to ensure that team members stay focused on the task at hand.
