Mistake #2 – Lack of Communication With Project Team

How Communication Mistakes Can Lead To Project Failure?


Communication between team members is vital for success. If team members are not communicating with each other, they will not be able to work together efficiently, which can lead to delays and even failure of a project.

Communication is a key part of any project. It is the way that the team communicates with each other, their clients and stakeholders.

Communication can be verbal, written or visual. All three are important for different reasons but it is vital that all parties have access to the same information in a timely manner.

A lack of communication can have many effects on a project including:

  • Confusion
  • Lack of trust
  • Unclear goals
  • Inability to make decisions

Enhancing the Workplace Experience with Better Communication

Communication is one of the most important aspects of team work. It is essential for team members to be able to communicate well with each other so that they can work together efficiently. There are a few ways in which we can prevent communication mistakes from happening again.

  1. Have an open discussion with team about what project need from each other
  2. Set clear project expectations for how you want the team to work together
  3. Make sure everyone on the team has their own role and responsibilities from project perspectives
  4. Be proactive about solving problems before they happen
  5. We should have regular meetings and discussions where each team member gets a chance to share their thoughts and ideas
  6. We should make sure that all the information about the project such project plan, key assumptions etc. is shared with everyone so that there are no misunderstandings about what needs to be done
  7. We should not just rely on email or text messages for communication but instead use collaboration tools such as MS Teams which will allow us to see when someone reads our message and respond accordingly


Communication is the lifeblood of any project. If you don't communicate well with your team, you'll have a hard time getting things done. This can lead to a lot of frustration and even project failure. It allows teams to know what the other team members are working on and how they are progressing. It also helps to keep everyone on the same page with regards to deadlines and goals.

The best way to avoid this is to use tools that help you communicate better. These tools will help you manage your projects more efficiently and keep everyone on the same page.

It is important for project managers to have a good communication plan in place before starting a project. This will help them identify who needs to be involved at different points in the process and with what frequency they will need to communicate with each other.
