PM Point of View

Transformation Attenuation: The loss of signal that occurs as a message moves down the chain from the C suite.

Illusion: The assumption that communication has taken place, when in fact it hasn't. 

Here we explore these two phenomena in depth, and examine ways to avoid them, thereby increasing project & organizational effectiveness.
