Before the curtain was pulled away, the Wizard of Oz was a booming, angry voice. After it was pulled away, the Wizard was a kind, sympathetic, elderly statesman who used his wisdom and position to recognize and reward the contributions of individual team members, honor their collective accomplishments and join with the team leader in a partnership to accomplish the team's goal. The Wizard's role was to identify problems and collective solutions, find out what was important to the project and the individuals, affirm and recognize the qualities necessary for success, inspire the team to even greater strength and accomplishment, and solidify their commitment to their vision and goals. The elements and people essential to project success have changed over the last few years. Not every project is perfect, with clearly defined requirements and goals. The author describes how wizards, the new team leaders, work with the chaos of real life to pull together a success
