What is the importance of defining project team responsibilities?

The success of any project ultimately rests on the due diligence of the implementers, in this case the Project Team. It is important that they are carefully selected in line with the requirements of the project and that they are well socialized into the role so that they embrace it and take full ownership of their roles. The project manager must make prior consideration of current roles, work and commitments as well as possible availabilities of potential team members prior to their selection. This helps rule out those who may be at peak periods in their current roles and risk missing out meetings due to work commitments and thus cause delays on the project. Members must have clear definition of their individual and collective roles in order for them to always come prepared to meetings, including feedback on responsibilities assigned to them from time to time throughout the life span of the project. An incentive to keep them motivated will work in favor of the project manager and may not necessarily come in monetary terms but explore options such as meeting over breakfast or lunch which is catered for by the project budget. By all means effort must be made by the project manager to keep the team motivated so that they run the project skillfully and efficiently within the set timelines.
