Is communication slowing you down?
We have said this before, products are built by exceptional teams. However, as teams grow communication is one of the aspects of the process that can be easily overlooked.
The impact of not communicating can be felt in all areas of the business. For example, without access to specific information is the entire team *really* working towards the same goal?
Communicating with the team takes time. However, communicating with the team will create among other things buy-in from the team, lead to a more effective decision-making process, and improved prioritization.
Create a communications plan and stay consistent.
