Organizing your Team

Tip:
Project management is always difficult when there is more than one person. Many professional developers, including myself, have our own ways of doing things. But being part of a team is a more effective approach to delivering professional development. Each of us has certain strengths and weaknesses and, as part of a team, one can fill in where others may be lacking.

  • Identify each of your team members.
  • Determine areas of expertise for each team member including curriculum or content areas, technology skills, classroom management strategies, and instructional methods.
  • Ask each team member to put down their interests and what they really would like to be doing.
  • Group areas of same interest and expertise and identify strengths and gaps.
  • Assign with the team's permission who on the team will be responsible for what type of activities.
  • Create a flow chart of who reports to which team member.

A company that is based on project management strategies has a website where I found some of these ideas: http://www.4pm.com/repository.htm
