Planning Communication with the Team

Planning for formal communications with the project team might seem to pre-empt the project manager’s role.  However, deciding the frequency, style and timing of communication with the team is important. 

Consider the team’s time zones, location, languages, different public holidays and any disability that needs adaptions. Thinking about these may change the way this project communicates compared to the organisations other projects. While the project needs to fit within its organisation, it may need to be different in approach to be effective.

Communication within the team is more than reporting progress and monitoring completion. It is also about building commitment, and understanding the context and aims of the project.
