Effective project communication is an important skill for all project managers (PJMs) to have. Without effective communication, some of the challenges a project team can face include:
- Running the risk of someone on the team working with outdated information.
- Stakeholders not kept in the loop that asset delivery will be delayed.
- Resources are constrained because a member is on vacation.
And the list can go on. These are rookie mistakes and easy to mitigate if the PJM can practice effective project communication. On the long run, this will pave a smoother path to project completion. When your stakeholders know what your milestones are and when to expect deliverables, you may reap unexpected benefits.
