An example of team planning in action took place in the telecommunications industry. The projects involved
designing, manufacturing, installing, and testing complex voice/data communications/information systems by
AT&T under contract to companies and agencies purchasing the new systems. AT&T had sound project
management practices in place, but the company needed to accelerate and improve its project planning,
scheduling, and team-building efforts for these major projects. The team planning start-up workshops
typically were conducted in two or three sessions of one full day apiece, usually one week apart (to allow time
for cleanup of each day’s results and preparation for the next planning session). The first two days usually
included fifteen to twenty internal AT&T team members and managers (although on one very large project
the team comprised forty people). The third day included the AT&T team members plus the client project
team members.
