4 Ps and a Podcast- final

A monthly newsletter by Workamajig


September 2022

Here at Workamajig, we’re on a mission to make your work (and work life) easier.

But we’ve learned in the 30+ years of supporting thousands of creative agencies that making work easy isn’t easy.

It’s not something you can wish into existence.

To make work life simpler, more efficient, and productive, you need to ace the 4 core areas, aka the 4 Ps of project management:


  • Process: workflows & operations - y’know, the day to day stuff
  • Projects: ‘nuff said
  • People: think resource management, employee retention, customer service
  • Profits: the part that keeps us all in business ;)

So how do you go about simplifying your work life across these four core areas?

That’s what our newsletter 4Ps and a Podcast is for.

Once a month, we'll send you an email focused on one of these topics. It’ll include actionable tips, free templates, some WMJ news & more.

This September, we’re focusing on People, particularly on what you can do to establish effective client communication.



The Importance of a Communication Plan in
Project Management

Every project manager knows you need great team communication to deliver great results to clients.

Unfortunately, communicating effectively doesn’t come naturally to most people. Assuming that team members instinctively know how to, when, and with whom to communicate can be a recipe for disaster.

Your team needs a document detailing the strategies, processes, and details of communicating with all project stakeholders.

What is this document, and how do you create one? Check out this nifty guide.

Pro Tip: Did you know that as a Workamajig user, you have a seamless way of communicating information inside and outside your project teams? Watch this video and discover how to avoid costly communication breakdowns that turn minor snags into major headaches.
