About the project

It is important to keep everyone in the loop on project status, but it is easy to forget to do it. This is where a lot of the mistrust between IT and the business team comes from: The business does not feel like it has a good handle on what’s happening with its projects. And the more it feels left in the dark, the more likely it is to start trying to micromanage or force things to happen the way it feels it should be done. You can mitigate this problem by letting people know where things stand, both on a regular basis and when milestones are accomplished or the status changes.
