Right now, I am pursuing with my graduation final year(bachelor in computer science).I don’t know whether I can ask question about my college stuff, because never came across while browsing through question. Still, it’s my
I have a group of 5 members, working on a Java based project. As a matter of chance, I am the team leader, and have much experience with Java. Rest of my members are not so good, in fact, not even average. From the starting, the whole burden is on me, and the whole coding stuff+ the documentation. But this is high time now. I worked days and nights, seeking answers on Stack Overflow, but now I feel kind of pressurized. I too have a limit. And need to make them also work now.
But, my fellow mates have taken me for granted. I don’t know what to say now? How to tell them to work hard? And the problem is, if they have to contribute, they have to know a hell about Java, so they have to study a lot. But, they don’t want to. What should I do? How to handle this?
Few points as requested in comments.
Well this may sound funny but, in colleges and stuff, there is no project management. This might be shocking, that the structure of the project,is completed after the project gets over.
This is common because this is the stage when we are learning things, and don’t have much experience about its implementation. And there is no division of work. Who so ever is good at it, should go for it.
"This sounds like a classic case of one person running off with a project after getting really excited and not bothering to try to include his teammates, who then don't do anything or put effort into the project, and ultimately back-firing because one person cannot accomplish an entire project. But the eager team-member realizes this too late to effectively change tactics and suddenly the entire team is going to be brought down as a result. " by @enderland
Well,yes, i think its true.Have to accept it.
Realized it just now,it was my mistake for whatever had happened.Cannot blame my team-mates for this. Should have thought before what to do,and what not.But now trying to correct my mistake with the help of comments and answers,answered by helpful,experienced and wonderful people on this forum.Thanks.
Will update what happened in the end.
