What is Electrical Project Coordination?
The Oxford Handbook of Project Management describes electrical project coordination as ensuring communication and information-sharing among everyone involved in the project. It consists of organizing people, information, and job activities so every aspect of the project runs seamlessly.
Project coordination should happen at the internal and external project levels.
Internal coordination ensures company resources are kept up-to-date on the project status and have the tools necessary to provide support. It includes procurement specialists, the prefab department, field staff, accounting, and estimating personnel.
External coordination refers to parties who are part of the project team but are not employed by the company. Some examples include engineers, architects, suppliers, and vendors.
