One of the most prudent steps you can take to maximize the impact of a team improvement initiative is to appoint a strong leader. An effective project team leader moves the team forward and inspires team members to do their best work.  They also manage many of the organizational systems needed to keep a project on track.
  Conway Management's Team Leader Training helps develop strong team leaders, providing them with the knowledge, skills and ability to understand and fulfill their role throughout a project to ensure that the project achieves the organization’s goals.

  • Keep the necessary people (sponsors, functional management) informed of progress, barriers and roadblocks and provide guidance to the team based on management direction
  • Maintain documentation of the team's efforts
  • Behave in a way that contributes to team effectiveness
