8.2 Effective team management

The assessment team leader is responsible for ensuring that the team functions effectively. This requires the following: 

  • Ensure all team members are fully briefed on the mission objectives, their own role in meeting the terms of reference, security issues, standard operating procedures and their reporting requirements. 
  • Facilitate team work including planning, analysis and review of findings and information sharing. This includes daily team meetings, phone calls and end-of-day debriefings. 
  • Manage the performance of team members and address any disciplinary issues. 
  • Coordinate reporting inputs to ensure all members deliver required outputs.
