The commitment when you join a project depends on the role you will play.  Several types of participation role exist and are outlined below:

Project Team Lead (For more on Team Leaders, see: Team/Project Leader Role):

  • Ensure project is developed in line with TM Forum IPR policy
  • Encourage all participants to take an active role in the project
  • Ensure participants have a clear understanding of what they need to complete and when
  • Drive the project team for on time delivery
  • Lead the design, planning and execution validation activities
  • Identify key companies required to position for industry adoption


To get started with leadership positions within a collaborative project, we recommend that you begin by taking on the role of Workstream lead.  In this role, you will drive a workstream of a project, encouraging active participation as well as leading the design and execution of validation activities for the workstream.  This helps you build experience in leading part of a collaborative project and is a good way to meet and work with the other project participants.
