Chapter 2: Project Management Success > Expected Problems in Team Management

Expected Problems in Team Management

As mentioned, the role of project manager lies at the intersection of client management and team management. Although many things can go wrong in your handling of the client, many of them are eventually reversible. Relationships tend to be malleable, and what looked like trouble one day can become a strength the next. Your clients’ opinion of you can change for the better overnight, and the past has little bearing on the future.

When it comes to team management, that isn’t always the case. It takes longer to recover from mistakes, and getting over a loss of trust can take even longer. This effect is compounded when the error was foreseeable, or the team knew about it and figured that you knew about it as well. Fortunately, the converse is also true. If you make a wise decision or make a difficult decision correctly, you may be able to win over the team enough so that the next time you have difficulty, they’re more inclined to follow your lead.
