Can you explain your role in a previous project that you worked on that required the efforts of a team to complete?
Yes, you can answer this question with a class project but work experience is preferred. This question wants to find out a few things about you:
- Are you a leader or a follower?
- Are you a bully or a consensus-builder?
- Did you complete the project on time and within budget?
You should also not come across as too bullish when a lighter, china-smoothing touch was needed. It is also important to explain if the project was completed on time and if you spent all of your money without exceeding a limit. If you missed either mark, can you account for it? Explain how, in a future situation, you would not need elasticity in time or money.
This question wants to know about your management skills, both when managing and managed and if you can deliver the desired package.
