Communication is the foundation for project management success – I’ll take that thought into every project I manage and every PM discussion I have on the best attributes of a good project manager. Without the ability to practice effective and efficient communication – and plan for such – the project manager will have a very hard time navigating successfully through a long term project to an end solution that satisfies the clients’ end user needs. Good communication is the foundation for getting the project off on the right foot during kickoff, it is the basis for detailed requirements definition, it is a critical aspect of weekly delivery team meetings and information dissemination, and it is the basis for weekly formal status meetings with the project client designed to keep the project moving forward and on track to a successful end deployment.
If you’re looking for more information on how to carry out some of these duties to the best of your ability and how the communication aspect ties into each, please download our free eBook on the subject entitled, “The Essence of Project Communication Success.” It won’t guarantee communication excellence and success, but it can give the inquisitive project manager insight into those aspects that will help ensure greater chances of project success and client satisfaction, as well as better customer and project delivery team engagement and ownership of tasks. Accountability and awareness are key to task ownership and success, and this eBook will help the project manager and team get to that point.
