perform their own role successfully and that the results of each members’ individual work is
needed for the team to achieve its common goals.
One of the most important elements of developing the Plan was bringing together the
subject matter experts, or “thought leaders”, within the City staff who would frame, endorse
and then implement the Plan. The Project TeamMembers were identified by the City of
Raleigh and represented diverse City staff from the following Offices, Departments and
Divisions:
Budget and Management Services
City Attorney’s Office
City Manager’s Office
Division of Facilities and Operations
Finance
Fire
Information Technology
Office of Sustainability
Parks and Recreation
Police
Public Utilities
Public Works – Fleet Management Operations, Transportation Operations, Construction
Raleigh Convention Center
Solid Waste Services
A list of all Project TeamMembers is included in Appendix 1. The diversity of the Team
members ensured that the Plan would be applicable cross-departmentally and that key City
enterprise-wide goals were identified and included in the discussions. In addition, each
Project TeamMember was also part of a smaller Interdepartmental Team as described later
in this Section.
The Project TeamMembers discussed and agreed upon the values that were most important
to them in order to work together successfully as a team:
Active participation in the process to develop a Plan “from the bottom up”
Open and honest communication
Showing respect for others
Personal responsibility and accountability with willingness to take the initiative
Being positive, and open to and accepting of new ideas
Listening and being heard
Make efficient use of their time together
Commitment to the team and the project process to “own” the work and to
implement the strategies
