Skills are crucial for a team to be successful

Recently, I had the opportunity to interview William E. Perry, author of the book “iTeam: Putting the “I” Back into Team”. In the interview, William stressed how important it is to get people with the right skills into your team.

Main conclusion from the interview is that having a well skilled team is crucial to deliver the right software on time to your customers. Team member need to work together and support each other, and teams member should learn from each other and improve continuously. A manager must assure that they have the right people on the team, and support them to do their work effectively and to improve  their skills to deliver more value to their customers.
