Efficient Information Management

Managing information is a major challenge in today’s complex-and geographically dispersed organizations, and one that is often overlooked as it applies to teams. Teams are not effective in the absence of accurate and timely information. They need plans for gathering and disseminating information, and they need to frequently review those plans to make sure that they are operating as intended. When information doesn’t flow efficiently, your team may make poor decisions, leave crucial stakeholders out of the loop, and miss deadlines.

Both the team and its external stakeholders need to clearly understand the lines of communication and they need to use those communication channels, or information gaps can become information caverns. Imagine the disaster that would result if your team were charged with developing and bringing to market a new product line, but only toward the end of the project did it discover that there were no provisions, and no budget, for training the hundreds of people who would be responsible for selling the product and explaining it to customers.
