Studies by Gartner, KPMG etc have shown that one of the primary reasons why projects fail is breakdown (or lack) of communication. According to the PMI, over 75% of a Project Manager's job is communication. A successful Project Manager should be able to articulate the vision, objectives and goals of the project.
