Determining how and when to provide information to key members of your project team is essential to completing projects successfully. Although some team members will need to know almost everything that is happening, there may be other members whose roles are not as significant.
You also need to determine how to provide the information to your team. Weekly or biweekly meetings will be essential to communication even if they are simply conducted over the telephone. Using email effectively can greatly reduce the time needed for meetings and can keep everyone in the loop.
