Communication: A Vital Part of a Team

9 Mar

Communication is a vital part of any team role in an IS system. Without it information would not be passed to other members of the team and therefore will endanger the completion of the project. The skills of team communication are critical for ensuring the success of the team effort, whether the team is making a process improvement, or charged with creating a new product. Strong team communication skills can help build relationships, ensure the sharing of new ideas and best practices, and benefit team members through coaching and counselling. Here are the two main factors that contribute to the communication of a team are as follows;

Cohesiveness:

Team members must learn to work together so that all their findings and work are relevant to each other. Communication is critical and is driven by the team leader who will work with the team to establish ground rules and work to bring the team together so that it can accomplish its goals. Team analysts with share all their findings and relevant information on their research to other members in order to progress with the project. All teams will go through expected stages of planning, organizing, and developing in order to do this.

Sharing:

Sharing of information is an important part of communication f a team. When team communication skills are strong, it raises the chance that good ideas and best practices will be shared openly. At times there can be problems with members sharing information for fear of having their ideas stolen, criticized or even dismissed, this is why team leaders try to encourage their team members to try new ideas. It is also the role of a leader to try to create an open, positive and supportive environment among team members in order to get a better position to hear those good ideas and learn from the best practices of the group.
