The discipline of project management has traditionally focused on the more technical aspects of planning, scheduling and control. That is now changing. People often find themselves at the center of every project, without the effective management of a project's human resources; effectively, the best plan in the world will not ensure project success. The challenge that many project managers face is to inspire initial commitment and sustain it over the life of the project and then, if necessary, to address performance problems. The course looks at methods that help inspire team members to want to work in a dedicated fashion on the project and, above that, how to aim for excellence in team performance. The course includes a combination of lectures, small group discussions, and individual analysis and reflection, centered on the challenge of cultivating team member commitment and sustaining it for the duration of the project. Examination of practical performance problems and their impact on team motivation is covered through the use of situational case review and role playing exercises.
