Navigating Mixed Teams: Challenges and Solutions for IT Project Managers

Comparing it to navigating a team of elite athletes, I find that managing mixed teams is similar to directing a team of athletes from different nationalities and styles of play. In this scenario, IT project managers become the coaches who must coordinate successful strategies and practices with talents from different specialties and even international locations.

As a Talent Manager at Proceti, I have had the privilege of accumulating practical knowledge over more than 16 years on how to address these challenges and transform diversity into a competitive advantage. This knowledge, which I share with great pleasure in this space, aims to connect and exchange ideas.

Common Challenges in Managing Mixed Teams: A Real Perspective

As we enter the world of managing mixed teams, we find ourselves in a diverse and dynamic scenario where IT project managers face a series of challenges that, unfortunately, can put at risk the advancement of their goals and responsibilities as leaders within their respective organizations.

From uncertainty about the quality and availability of external personnel to the need for effective communication, each step in coordinating these teams presents its own complexities, which we are aware of and support with thorough work from each member of the Proceti family.
