Acquire Project Team

The acquire project team process involves the process of obtaining the specific people needed to accomplish all phases of the given project. Ultimately the team members would all bring specific qualifications and capabilities to the project team, although when workloads require so, duplicity may be required. Often times, the ultimate selection of a project team is made by the project management team. In addition to toe goal of diversifying the team and acquiring team members that bring differing assets to the team, a number of other factors should be considered when choosing the team members, Those factors include a series of enterprise environmental factors (such as work experience, availability, and cost among others), derivation of clear and concise project organization charts, and formulation of a thorough staffing management plan. Once the team has been properly staffed, the next steps (or outputs) of the process involve staffing out assignments to the team, determining availability of our resources, and updating your staffing management plan.

This term is defined in the 3rd and the 4th edition of the PMBOK.
