The Lazy Project Manager - Communication. When reporting does not equate to communicating There is, to my mind, a great book - Alpha Project Managers by Andy Crowe - it talks about 'what the top 2% know that everyone else does not' and it certainly identifies communication as a key area that top project managers excel at.

The Lazy Project Manager - Communication

The book, based on a survey of 5,000 project managers, states in its findings: 'Good communication is comprised of more than how the message is delivered. The information itself, the method used, and the timing with which it is delivered all contributes to effective communication.' Communication on a project is a two way process. Communication is also sequential, communicated through chains of people, which will add that 'Chinese whispers' effect - either intentional or accidental.

I was taught a truth in my early project management days - reporting is not communicating! One Page Project Manager.
