There are common responsibilities between a team leader and a project coordinator.. or a team leader can be the project coordinator along with existing project manager for the project? is this true?

Hi Sami,

team leader, project coordinator, project manager... these are all roles in the business enviroment.
So I have often seen a combination of theses roles in jobs.
For example a team leader who should also act as a project manager for department related projects is common
or a team member who is next to his doing ongoing operations also acts part time as a coordinator for a project.
From my point of view it is difficult for the staff to do so and you need skills like self-management...

In the PMBOK you will find more information about this information in the chapter 2.1.3 Organizational Structures
on page 21-26.
