While managing projects in these cross-functional teams is exciting and interesting, the challenges can be daunting and exhausting.  Furthermore, the project teams must engage with a number of stakeholders, all of whom have their own interests in the work.  Thus each new project will have its initial growing pains that could negatively impact members’ engagement levels and their motivation to participate..
