6.4 Team composition and roles they played Choose or building the right team is vital for the success of any task. Successful projects are usually the result of careful planning and the talent and collaboration of a project’s team members. It is essential that the right people be assigned to a team. Each person should be selected based on his or her knowledge and expertise as well as other potential factors (, 2018). The leader of the author’s team was always careful when assigning the roles, which each person had to play in the training event. As to his knowledge, he selected the relative people based on his or her characteristics and experience on a given context. In addition to selecting the appropriate people, leader used key roles that are essential to the overall team's success (, 2018). Key roles include Sponsor, Leader, Facilitator, Member, Gatekeeper, Recorder, Timekeeper, and Devil’s advocate. The above figure illustrates some important aspects of team organizational structure. Note that the Team Leader and Team Facilitator are ‘on the same level’ as all other Team Members. It shows the equality of the members in a sort of manner. Sponsor - The Sponsor oversees and supports the activities of the project teams.

Sponsors do not conduct the actual project; they guide the efforts of the project team. They appoint the project team and together with the team leader determine the project's boundaries. In the given context Dr. Dilina Herath , the author’s mentor was the team sponsor. He guided the team and always pushed the members to complete the training program. Team Leader - The team leader manages the team: calling and, if necessary, facilitating meetings, handling or assigning administrative details, organizing all team activities, and overseeing preparations for reports and presentations. In the author’s team Jana was the leader and he worked accordingly to the face of the scenarios every time possible (Nazzaro and Strazzabosco, 2018). The team leader should be interested in solving the problems that prompted the project, and be reasonably skilled at working with individuals and groups. Ultimately it is the leader's responsibility to create and maintain channels that enable team members to do their work.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
