Keeping people informed about company strategies is critically important in organizations of all sizes. Failure to communicate with employees or allow them access to meaningful information can exact a heavy price. A communication gap doesn’t only undermine morale and performance; it can ultimately impact the bottom line. The process of Managing by Walking around (MBWA) was developed to improve team connections and general communication. In a highly effective team, members must understand the organizations end goal or destination and obtain signals over the course of their efforts to confirm that they are on track.
