What am I doing in this step? Finding the right person to fill each role is many times a difficult task. You must, however, begin with the end in mind by knowing which specific skills are needed for each role before making team assignments.

What are the risks of not properly performing this step? The wrong person may be selected for a role. Web site development teams are typically small groups of talented people. Each person typically has specialties within their area of expertise. If a Microsoft NT administrator is tasked with setting up a UNIX environment, the project may be seriously impacted. A graphics designer may be skilled at selecting production graphics, but may not understand the art of site concept, layout or size reduction.

  • You may assign someone whose time is already over allocated. If your team members are not dedicated to this project, you need to understand the amount of time they can spare and manage the project accordingly.
  • The wrong mix of people may be assigned to the project. Getting feedback from each potential team member on including the others may help to avoid future conflicts.
