  • “It doesn’t matter a great deal what specific processes you adopt,” he writes, “as long as they make good business sense, have meaningful support from your team and stakeholders, and are actually used.”After all, most of the communication and status updates will go through you, so you have a key role to play in controlling the flow of information. “To a great extent, what you say and how you say it will determine how you are perceived as a leader, particularly by your managers and peers,” Kendrick writes.Communications are two-way, and you also have the power of questions at your fingertips. As it’s unlikely that you can say no outright, you can use questions to your advantage. Be diplomatic, and use questions to check assumptions, assert the problem that you are trying to solve, establish risks, confirm success criteria and generally confirm that the project team is doing the right thing.
