Profiling the Project

The design team and the way it works are critical to the outcome of any design project. A well-chosen and carefully managed team is essential, but it is often difficult to create an effective team from the available resources. Design projects have widely varying characteristics, and it is necessary to create a team responsive to the particular set of characteristics. In any particular project, the team composition may need to be modified as the project progresses through its natural phases, but the manager may not have the power or the resources to make the necessary adjustments. The best that can be done is to assess what sort of team would be ideal for the project and match this as closely as possible with the available people and available services.
