When to use it?
Whenever you need to manage teams. This applies equally well to both large and small projects.

1 Begin by asking several key questions of each team member - questions should include background and work experience, task likes and dislikes, tasks that they are successful in, tasks they would like to do in the job at hand.
2 Speak with team members frequently - hold regular meetings on projects - the agenda at these meetings should include cost & schedule adherence, scope of management issues, risk management, quality management, staffing concerns and client-relationship.
3 Evaluate the team performance - provide constructive criticism and accolades as needed. Encourage the team and support it every way you can. Announce team successes - reprimand in private.
4 Schedule team meetings - frequency of team meetings should coincide with project milestones or key deliverable dates.
5 Assess individual performance - fully understand your role in the review, explain your position and listen to others, be objective and flexible when possible.
