Be clear and specific
The vision of the team has to be measurable and specific. Everyone on the team has to be clear and agree on the vision.
Set goals with deadline and track the progress
Set goals for each individual as a team, set check points at reasonable intervals. Team meeting should be carried out at the check points and discuss about the progression and brainstorm to solve problems, if there is any.
Stay as a team
Never be afraid of sharing your difficulties. If everyone on the team involve and agree on the same vision, the main objective will be to solve the difficulties together as a team.
