Part 98: Recognition and Rewards
(Project Resource Management: Develop Team)

  • Rewarding desirable behavior enhances the team
  • An award is effective when it satisfies a need that is valued by the individual
  • People are motivated when they feel valued
  • An intangible reward can be more effective than a monetary award
  • Many team members are motivated by the opportunity to accomplish something meaningful, grow, and meet new challenges.  Therefore, money may not always be the best reward.
  • People should be rewarded throughout the project life cycle
