As we have learned in this module, managing project teams can be the most complicated and essential part of completing a project. A project manager must listen and understand the real issues when discussing problems with team members. Unfortunately, misunderstandings and complications often arise because of the diversity of cultures, personalities, and priorities of the individuals involved. In this discussion, you will have the opportunity to practice communicating with diverse individuals, use the project management jargon, and professionally express your views. The options available in this discussion have ethical considerations that are important to consider as a project manager.
A skilled project manager will help solve problems and inspire loyalty and dedication by valuing the uniqueness of each team member and the overall diversity within the team.
Discuss the following topics in your initial post about project team dynamics and the methods of communication best suited to each situation.
- The first step will be to create a PowerPoint that highlights the significant features of your solution plan proposal. Highly effective PowerPoint presentations feature visuals rather than paragraphs of text; as a result, you should plan to have a few bullet points on each slide, supplemented by an appropriate visual (image, graphic, chart, etc.). Please arrange to have your technology proposal handy for reference. Preparation will save you time because it reduces the chances of making a mistake and having to record over again.
- You will be recording your presentation utilizing a video conferencing tool, Zoom. You will present and record your slide presentation as if you were presenting to organizational leadership. Be sure and provide a slide for your references as well.
- Post your presentation and a transcript of the presentation as your initial discussion post. Please watch the video:
- Utilizing outside sources and course readings, offer suggestions for addressing identified problems and issues. The final assignment will consist of a 20-25 slide presentation. Using Zoom (Links to an external site.), you will present and record your slide presentation as if you were presenting to organizational leadership. Be sure and provide a slide for your references as well.
