Abstract: the Social Architect story is designed to stimulate learning on how a project manager establishes a project team as a self‐governed social system where all the team members have clear understanding of their responsibilities and are committed to the project. Once established, the Project Manager monitors and facilitates the social system through their challenges and ensures they reach their full potential through self‐governance. The scenario also captures the need for the Project Manager to be the interface between the upper management and the team, defending the interests of the latter and ensuring that the social system has their needs met to have a supportive work environment.
