Important Terms and Definitions - Managing the Project Team

The following are some of the important terms and definitions we learnt in this section on Developing & Managing the Project Team.
Asynchronous communication - A communication in which the two communicating entities do not have to be present on both ends of the communication line at the same time. E-mail is an example of asynchronous communication because when the sender of the e-mail pushes the send button, the intended recipient of the e-mail message does not have to be logged on to the e-mail server.
Corrective actions - Directions for executing the project work to bring expected project performance in conformance with the project management plan. This is an output item of the QA process.
Issue log - A notebook or a database to track and manage issues. This process includes entering the issue, modifying its status, and closing the issue.
Preventive actions - Directions to perform an activity that will reduce the probability of negative consequences associated with project risks. These preventive actions are recommended by the QA process during process analysis.
Virtual team - A team of members working on the same project with few or no face-to-face meetings. Various technologies, such as e-mail, video conferencing, and the World Wide Web, are used to facilitate communication among team members.
War room - A conference room used for project team meetings.
