Chapter 62:Introduction to Human Resource Management

We have begun the execution phase of the project. To execute a project you need resources and the success of the project heavily depends on the performance of these resources and the optimal utilization of available resources by the project manager. Therefore, coordinating and managing resources, including human resources, is an integral part of project execution. During project planning, you define roles and assign responsibilities to those roles. Individuals who play these roles perform the responsibilities of the roles to execute the project work.

The process of obtaining the individuals to fill these roles and therefore become the members of the project team is called acquiring the project team.

A team is a group of individuals who perform individual responsibilities to work inter-dependently on their independent assignments. From a scientific viewpoint, a team is a dynamic entity, and its dynamics are determined by the interaction among its members. Therefore, for the team to be successful, it has to be effective in both dimensions:

1. Its members must be competent in performing their individual assignments and
2. The interaction among them must be overall constructive.

To ensure that you need to continually develop and manage the project team.

To obtain the right individuals for the project team and to develop and manage the team is an art, whereas the effective team taking the project to success is a science that will unfold itself automatically if you do the art part right.

In the subsequent few chapters, we will learn the tips and tricks to master the art part (which is our responsibility as the project manager)
