Each person on the project team is essential to a successful outcome. The level of engagement that each team member has can significantly influence the level of success the project will have. Here are a few ideas for engaging your team.
Understanding the Pain
If you can involve the entire team in reviewing requirements, then the team will understand why change is needed to reduce or avoid the pain being experienced. Don’t just tell them what you want changed. This not only helps all team members better develop their piece of the solution for better test planning, it allows the entire team to discuss the problem and possible solutions so the best solution can be selected by everyone – including the customer/business.

Successful projects are found when project managers (PM) learn to
* Lead a team and not just manage it
* Enable the team to collaborate and self-direct, not just wait to be told what to do
* Facilitate and encourage innovation and creativity in solving problems, not just act as a foreman
Staying aware of the triple constraints (scope, time and resources) is critical, but managing them through the use of a project plan can make it very hard to adjust with changes that inevitably come your way during the project. Rather, changes can be seen as opportunities to improve the solution and make it fit bestt for the customer / business.
Agile project management is done through the collaboration of teams that consist of the customer, the business, and the project implementation team.
