“The leader knows that the principles of project management include a staffing plan or resource plan. This plan defines which employees are responsible for which task(s) and their overall roles. It is important to match a team member’s skill set to the assigned project role. The project responsibilities must be delegated to capable and competent individuals. Being able to define and list this information related to project tasks and activities for the entire team minimizes confusion and clarifies specific roles and responsibilities. The staff performing these assigned roles and completing these tasks need to understand what authority they have to make decisions concerning their specific area of the project and to whom they report. Ensuring answers to these questions in a team chart or plan is critical.” –  KATHLEEN FEDERICI, for TrainingIndustry.com, excerpted from her article, “What Does Project Management Have to Do With Being an Effective Leader?”, click here to read the article in its entirety.
