Studies indicate that many professionals are no longer comfortable picking up the phone to make a work related call. We will explore how communication behaviors and preferences have changed, and examine how these changes create both opportunity and risk in our projects. From there we’ll discuss ways this impacts our current project communication plans, and explore ways to adjust our communications to be more effective. Finally we’ll share some practical communication tips.
