Peter Hartauer, QualityMinds GmbH
Communication is essential for a good project.
Only by an intense communication of all participants, an acceptable result can be reached. However, it is always difficult to establish it.
This talk encourages all project participants to think about their own methods of communication. It uses a real-world example to point out one specific problem: the â€œChinese Whispersâ€ cumulative error, which is characterized by people talking only to the person next in their hierarchy. It results in distorted information and creates an outcome quite different from the input. The talk will present the issue in a humorous way and give some solid advice.
- Communication must take place between all project participants.
- You should ask people questions to truly understand the problem.
- How to listen and read carefully.
