Motivation: How To Increase Project Team Performance
Source: Project Management Institute
Motivation can inspire, encourage, and stimulate individuals and project teams to achieve great accomplishments. Motivation can also create an environment that fosters teamwork and collective initiatives to reach common goals or objectives. The level of motivation an individual and/or team applies to project efforts can affect all aspects of project results, including a direct impact to the triple constraint project success factors (i.e., on time, within budget, high quality, met scope/customer expectations). Knowing this, it is in the project manager's best interest to understand the reason for demotivation in order to achieve project success through the creation and maintenance of a motivating environment for all members of the team.
