What is the ideal composition for the project team?
In general the project team should be a reflection of the organisation. It is important to have present as many areas of expertise as possible. There should always be a member of the Information Systems department, and someone who knows about telecommunications. This may be the same person. The most important activities of the primary departments should be represented. Often, a member of the support staff is a welcome addition: from Strategy, Internal policy, or Customer Support, for example.
A more diverse project team will increase the quality of the risk assessments.
When the project team is too large, project meetings can become chaotic and long-winded.
A total of 5 to 10 members will often strike a convenient balance.
