The Role of the Project Team Leader
getting the team started - Role of project team leader

I made this webinar for a company that is moving many people to team leadership roles, and they were struggling with their virtual teams getting work done.

The company had good people and we identified that poor beginnings to team projects created challenges later on. We also identified that the team leaders needed some simple check-lists and job-aids to ensure that they could do their best work.

By having the – Getting the team started Checklists – this freed up the creative energy for the team leaders to improve the teamwork and system for how they work together.

We are making more webinars and internal team leader job-aids that will support new and semi-experienced team leaders to make progress.

Getting the team started – Role of the Project Team Leader


The Role of the Project Team Leader

The team leader has overall responsibility for making sure the work of the team gets done. Those responsibilities start before the team comes together and continues until the team has disbanded.

Before the team project

The team leader gets the team started.

During the team project

The team leader keeps the team on track, acts as the primary point of contact for the rest of the organization, and works to gain stakeholder commitment to the project.

After the team project

The team leader ensures that the team’s work is documented, hands the project off to the process owner, and debriefs the Project Sponsor/Champion.
