Project planning as such hasn't changed much due to covid. However, the way we communicate on the projects has changed a bit. As a young engineer, I adopt to the platform/methodology that my client (internal and external) are comfortable with. Currently, I am based out of Houston office but I am involved with both Iowa and Texas projects. To get things done, I have personally become a proactive communicator and I encourage our junior staff to be proactive as well. I have used the following platforms to communicate
Internal Client Communication : I have used One Note to collaborate and track project tasks. Our team also has a Zoom Group Chat – where we discuss workload and other similar project items.
External Client Communication: We have used emails with a tweak that we send many more emails as compared to pre-covid volume. We also use zoom meetings with screenshare feature to replace the in-person meetings.
