In this episode, my co-host Chris Knutson, PE leads one of the panels from our past Engineering Career Summit on project management and communication and how you can be a successful communicator with your engineering project team.
Here are the key points:
How is communications important in project management?
- Setting the right expectations for the project team is essential: clarity of purpose, the scope, roles and responsibilities.
- The best way to have reliable projects is to aggregate risks.
- Get to the actual point.
- Listening is a key factor in gaining clarity and understanding about your engineering projects.
- Empower each team member to have ownership of their own task and to work in a collaborative space with each other.
