Rules for Heading Into Space, or Other Supreme Projects
 
Here’s a Business2Community post for weekend reflection from a former NASA project manager, Jerry Madden – "A Project Manager’s Lessons Learned". Five of the 128 rules are expressly on communication and that’s important, because, “according to a report by the Project Management Institute one in five projects fail due to poor communications.”

PR people don’t have to be reminded of the importance of good communication. But effective communication is a highly nuanced skill that can take a lifetime to master. Starting with the express aim of being a good communicator above all else, and following up on it by study, reflection and self-criticism is a worthy path.
