"We've discussed the various reasons projects go awry - from project management problems to technical failures. Clearly at the heart of all project failure is communication failure. Proper communication is critical to the success of any project, and the restart of a runaway project is no exception. Clear and concise information about the project, each member's role(s) and responsibilities, the interactions of this project with other ongoing activities and intiatives, and the way project information is distributed throughout the management chain can have a direct impact on the project. Thus, it is paramount to establish and maintain the proper lines of communication throughout the lifecycle of any given project."
