Individual self-management in project teams

Frequently, individual members of project teams have to work independently on demanding (partial) tasks. It is therefore particularly promising that the individual team members "lead themselves" in a suitable manner. The question thus arises as to how the individual self-leadership of the individual team members should be designed.

Martin Haberstroh examines how effective individual self-leadership can be designed, taking into account relevant contextual and success variables. For this purpose, he evaluates the responses of 266 team members and 53 project teams. Among the key findings is that individual team members can enhance project team performance, particularly through the following measures:

  • Determining and promoting a systematic approach to work execution, e.g., through goal setting and planning, and systematic observation of their own task performance behavior,
  • Obtaining task-relevant information, e.g. from the customer/client, team leader, other team members, and
  • Observing one's own task performance with regard to problems that endanger the project and reporting problems identified as endangering the project as quickly as possible.
