There is truth to the saying that knowledge is power. There are few things more empowering than great team communication. By choosing to not create effective methods of communication, we choose to rob our teammates of the power that they need to contribute to the team. It takes effort and time. Communication systems should always be considered a work in progress because as the team evolves, the need for communication evolves with it. Great teams constantly tweak how they communicate to make sure everyone stays in the loop.
