Open lines on the open road

Project managers are on the move. Frequent travel between teams and project sites means project practitioners must often communicate remotely. But virtual communication can come with very real roadblocks. This article features project practitioners sharing their advice for seamless communication on the road. In doing so, it explains how time zones, schedule drift, dead zones, inaccessible files, and missed requests are some communication roadblocks that project managers should try to avoid. Accompanying the article is a sidebar discussing how using email to communicate often leads to misunderstandings.
