The Project Management Institute labels the four stages of a project as, “forming, storming, norming, and performing.”

The inclusion of a stage called “storming” is an admission that we could do a better job with the human side of projects: especially on large projects involving hundreds of people and hundreds of millions of dollars.

This course is designed for any project manager or project engineer that would like to consider a way to speed the forming stage, potentially eliminate the storming, and get to “performing” more quickly than in the traditional manner.

This course takes the student beyond the traditional two or three teambuilding meetings that may occur with a large project to demonstrate that we must change that concept into one with more depth and the potential for greater endurance and performance: team development.

We see traditional team building as an activity that begins with the project team member and flows outward dealing with their role on the project, their relationship with other team members, and their work in support of the project.

Our proposed approach for team development begins before the first team member arrives on the project. It starts by defining measurable performance expectations regarding technical and non-technical skills for each function. Then creates a system whereby the project team members are able to self-monitor their performance allowing them opportunities for professional and self-development that are not so evident in a traditional team-building environment.

The ultimate goal with this course is a project that is delivered on time, on budget, meets all of the client’s expectations, and team members can’t wait to work together again on the next project!
