I want to share with everyone hear my article in this months PM Network, 'Open Doors' (March 2018, page 25). It is an article on the importance, value, and benefit of transparency in project management.
Thank you, everyone. Absolutely, agree with all your comments. You cannot play chess in the dark.
Najam, it was SharePoint. I had created project sites where all artifacts were readily available, discussion boards, status, health, etc. I would create a dashboard effect on the home page for an at-a-glance view, with the schedule timeline view, charts and diagrams depicting a burndown or overall state. I also would sync my MS Project schedule with the site's task list to have a 'live' status of events, providing a view of late or upcoming on the home page. Anyone could see the project status simply by clicking the URL link. With notifications and subscriptions, primary team members and stakeholders would get updates when content or discussions were added or updated.
