In most cases collaboration not only can happen at a fast pace, but there are often multiple disparate parts that come together. How do you keep track and ensure you're moving closer to your collective goal? Assign a group facilitator to manage the team's process, keep the team honest, and ensure you keep out the noise.
- There are three things you must get right…in order to collaborate, project management,…clear communication to stakeholders, and effective meetings.…These probably sound familiar…and maybe even a little obvious.…But what's not obvious is that these responsibilities…should go to a single person.…Yes, one person.…I know everyone's busy and dividing and conquering…seems like a natural strategy here.…But try to keep that as your plan B strategy.…Using just one person for…these responsibilities can absolutely work.…
In fact, it will streamline coordination costs.…Think about it.…The person managing the project knows all the details.…If that person can communicate directly…to relevant parties, there's less chance…of forgetting important things,…or explaining something in the wrong way.…If that same person owns the structure…and process of the meeting, even better.…So who is this one person to do this?…It's natural to assume the team…or project leader is a good choice.…
Given their position, this makes sense.…But in my experience, it's less than ideal.…
