As part of an academic course we have to develop a project. It is a group of 5 students. In such environment there is no hierarchy, all students have the same authority. There are several tasks to be done (writing a document, coding, ... ). One of the students is not very expert in one of the tasks and the results are poor. Then it takes the other students a lot of effort to fix the issues. The student though it's very prone to continue working on this type of tasks.
He is a very hard worker and takes initiative but not in the direction we would like.
We need the student to continue on the team and keep a good atmosphere because we are collaborating on other courses too.
His handicap is not a core competence in the course so it is not an objective of the course to develop these skills.
How can we manage the situation without causing hard feelings and keeping the good atmosphere we are having so far?
I understand this topic, even if not in the business field, has its application to business. It is a good example of leading, organizing and negotiating without authority.
