Project management has experienced new conceptual developments over the past few decades. The developments and transformations have focused on two main project objectives: schedule and cost. To meet project objectives, the project manager relies on information to communicate with the project team and stakeholders. Efficient information and communication management systems can help project managers to track cost and schedule and to identify issues, risks and other challenges for project completion. This research examines the role of communication in project management and explores the key drivers of effective communication and suggests that developing a front-end planning information tool could not only help project managers to meet communication needs but also be useful in transforming the project management world.
