There’s a lot of activity in the infrastructure sector in Australia at the moment, with government investing heavily in the sector. While the expertise and skills associated in this investment are first and foremost in the delivery of the major projects and associated works, the need for service providers in the communication field is more important than ever.
Communication helps build and maintain relationships and establish trust. Decisions on principals, partners, suppliers and sub-contractors are based on this. Businesses hoping to profit from the investment in infrastructure should identify ways they can communicate internally and externally through media channels that align with their business’ core values.
But communication isn’t only important in gaining new business, it’s crucial in the delivery of projects too. A common characteristic among projects delivered on or ahead of time, at or under budget and with an exceptional safety records is clear, concise and transparent communication, with all stakeholders, for the duration of the project.
A Harvard Business Review article reported communication was the number one predictor for success on projects. The research identified three aspects of communication that affect team performance.
· The first is energy, which they measured by the number and the nature of exchanges among team members.
· The second is engagement, the distribution of energy or exchanges among team members.
· The third is exploration, or outward oriented communication.
Simply put, the study proved the fundamental importance of effective internal and external communication.
