Creating high-performing teams for your projects

An event by PMI Switzerland Chapter and PwC Switzerland

Human capital research has given us some interesting insights over the last 30 years. Did you know, for example, that undermined motivation probably has a larger effect on productivity and quality than any other factor? And that after motivation, probably the largest influencer of productivity is the individual capabilities of members of a team or the working relationships among them?

This interactive presentation draws on experience with building high-performing teams for IT projects, nationally and internationally. You’ll get insights into how to build teams that make the grade, what roles need to be included, and what factors influence behaviour and motivation. And you’ll find out what happiness and grit could possibly have to do with the success of a project.
