Develop initial project

Participation of each team member in developing is a pre-condition to success. It’s most imperative to involve them in finalizing each detail and let them give their inputs.

Set out the standards

Make it clear to everyone that how their performance will be measured? What will be the standards? The more the expectations will be clear, the more will be the best outcomes.

Risks are inseparable. So, let the team aware for all bottlenecks that they may face and make them clear that you are always available in adverse situations.
