PM Point of View #59: Psychometrics: Myers-Briggs and Beyond
Know thyself. Then know your teammates. A key component of effective project management is teamwork, but that’s not always easy when you bring together people representing a range of ages, backgrounds, and values. There are steps PMs can take to engender a harmonious and, consequently, a productive work environment. Generally, it's better to address this issue earlier rather than later. To sort through the various assessment tools, and their corresponding philosophies and methodologies, Kendall Lott has gathered a round table of experts to talk about the benefits, how to use them, when to use them, and when not to use them.
