The Project Management Institute (PMI) asserts that 90% of a project manager’s time is spent communicating. When one considers the pervasiveness of electronic communications (email, messaging, social media), the seemingly inordinate number of meetings (face-to-face or virtual), and the vast amounts of documentation required to lead projects, that statistic seems legitimate.
Project Communications & Reporting will focus on best practices in communications and the incorporation of techniques such as Earned Value Management (EVM).
