THE PEOPLE IN YOUR TEAM
There are good people in the team. They are good at what they do on a day to day basis. They show initiative, loyalty, and great team work.
What happens when people are taken out of ‘business as usual’ and put on a new project? Probably the same thing that happens to anyone else. Some friction. Loss of confidence. A little confusion. This spells problems for a business.
There is a big difference between tasks that people are used to or that lie within their comfort zone and tasks that your team might be capable of but aren’t used to. This is often forgotten.
RESPONSIBILITY / ACCOUNTABILITY
To start with, the team’s performance management should be altered. The further away from their normal role the project takes them, the more change is needed. It is a good idea to show people how the operational structure of the project will work. The team will need to work through their new responsibilities.
This all gives the team a foundation to work from and give them the best chance of settling in.
These points create the need for solid documentation. It is also worth preparing for any staffing issues. Perhaps the new business focus has caused some problems. They might require a disciplinary process. Perhaps the business requires needs new people to make sure it succeeds.
I can help with the management of the team. Ensuring that any business chaos is reduced at the start. I can also provide a second opinion of the right people for the team roles. With my HR experience, I can lift the load of any documentation needs. As well as supporting with any staffing issues. Including disciplinaries and recruitment.
