Importance of Communication in Project Management

22 Oct

Communication is such a vital part in any profession and industry that can ultimately end in success or failure in any project, as no matter how big or small a project is, the impacts can be felt across several different individuals and departments.  

This week, I have been asked to make a presentation to the students in an IT Project Management Class, taught at the University of Nevada, Reno, about the importance of Communication in Project Management. Some highlights of this presentation will include:
Poor Communication Can Lead to:
  • Duplicate Work
  • Unclear Expectations
  • Misunderstandings
  • Missed Opportunities: Delayed Go-Live Date for a Project
Effective Communication Includes:
  • Know your audience to tailor your communication to them (Top Executives vs. Project Team Members)
  • Make sure you’re talking to the right group of people
  • Keep your communication clear & to the point
  • Provide proper time to respond, question, and react to communication
What tips have helped you successfully to communicate with others?
