Communication is one of the major aspect in one’s life. In Project Management, it plays a vital role. Communication is not just talking,
it is a process of exchanging information between the speaker and the audience. The information must be delivered in a proper manner to the right persons in the right situation. Effective communication in a particular organization leads to the project success. When the information is not properly delivered then the project may be in danger as there might be any mismatch in the records. Thus communication is a key factor and it cannot be neglected.
The selection of Herb as the project manager for his new work should be evaluated compulsory before taking any decision.
Before assigning a work to a person, we should always consider all the factors accordingly which are required for the task.
According to the case study, we can observe that this project has two requirements such as R;D and MANUFACTURING.
As Herb has PhD and also had a god experience on working with R;D and MANUFACTURING , Herb fits for this new position. The only thing is that he only had very less interactions with the project staff in his previous projects.
Thus we can say that he had less knowledge, but making him as the project manager was the right decision.
According to the case study, it is clear that there is a lot of communication gap between the team members.
Alice, Bob, Betty and Frank were not able to maintain their communication skills with Herb. Alice was expecting recommendation letter from Herb which was not given by him because of the decoding communication issue with her. Brett did not understand conversation and his communication issue was feedback since she was asked to estimate the cost for the raw materials but not to make any decisions on it.The communication issue with Bob is encoding.
