RUNNING HEAD: Team Building at Global Green Books Publishing Elyssa EdwardsTeam Building at Global Green Books PublishingA.What are some of the challenges facing project teams? Have you encountered any ofthese problems in teams that you have been part of? What other team problems have you experienced?Diversification in teams, such as in this case with some of the team members being around for a long time while others were new, and some were part time employees while some were full time, can lead to significant conflict between team members and management. Technical issues, such as faulty technology, delayed permissions, lack of content, and other things can lead to scheduling issues and inter-personal issues between employees. Project teams can also face issues with part time workers, as is seen at GlobalGreen Books, as they come in and complete pieces of the project and hand them off to other people with little communication, leading to lack of excellence in projects. In project teams, there can also be lack of communication between team members and the leaders, inactive or incommunicative members can be a substantial issue in team cohesiveness and effectiveness, and if the leader is lacking in ability, project teams can struggle with conflict management and decision making.
