Typical Example…

A Project Manager at a Cellular phone manufacturing company has set ground rules for the team members of his new project. The ground rules include: 


  • The Project team members will be consulted about the sensibleness of the plan before the project manager submits the plan for managerial approval. 
  • The Project team members are responsible for notifying the project manager of any necessary changes to the project plan.
  • The Project Manager is responsible for ensuring that the team members assigned to a team leader are made available for the project at the appropriate time.
  • The Project team members are responsible for informing the project manager of any potential delay in meeting their scheduled deadlines as soon as it is known to them.
  • The Project team members are responsible for notifying the project manager or team leader about any anticipated workload conflicts within the project.
