Abstract

Interdisciplinary solutions often have to be found for the pending problems within projects. This cross-discipline collaboration can only be done by project teams. It takes their energy to work in a goal-oriented manner within the team. At the start of the project work, the newly established team is generally not yet focused. It is worthwhile building a picture of the affected system within the project that is as complete as possible, even if it means that the project gets off to a slower start. If all the affected parties are relatively integrated within the project, this will generally create a heterogeneous project team composition. The various systems with their different cultures and realities are then exposed to one another in this microcosm. A basic understanding of different personality types will support and encourage a constructive examination. The team energy can develop.
