One of the most important steps of a project is to carefully choose the team. This is not an easy job to do, because it requires a lot of objectivity and you must keep in mind the goal of the project and not the sympathy for certain persons. Before choosing the team you must think what kind of specialists you need exactly and this is the main thing you must consider when you choose the members: their specialty and your need for it.
Most of the times, having to choose a team means forgetting about sympathies and friendship and doing the right thing for the sake of the project. And because team building means more than just choosing a team, and also growing it and educating it, this also represents forgetting about yourself sometimes, especially when you’re the Project Manager or the responsible person for the success of the project.
