1. What is the makeup of a project Core Team?
The Core Team is the management team responsible for funding and staffing the project.
The Core Team is made up of the lead individuals assigned to the project who are doing most of the work on the project.
A cross-functional team representing all of the organizational functions who conduct project activities and the Project Leader.
2. What are the Core Team member’s responsibilities?
Completing the key project deliverables that have been assigned to them.
Managing functional extended team resources to ensure they are completed correctly.
Directing the activities of their functional extended team and ensuring overall project objectives will be met.
3. If a Core Team has team meetings where “storming” occurs due to conflict between team members, what should the Project Leader do?
Nothing. Conflict is good because it leads to better decisions.
The Core Team member should request counseling from the Human Resources department for those individuals who are in conflict with each other.
Use the GRPI (Goals, Roles, Processes, Inter-personal) construct to find the source of the conflict and resolve it.
4. When in the project lifecycle do project Core Teams normally go through a “Storming” period?
During initial project planning, again during planning for each phase, and whenever the project must go through a change.
When the Core Team is first formed.
The Core Team should not go through a “storming” period. If that occurs the project Core Team should be dissolved and a new Core Team formed.
