In the article “Lessons Learned from Managing the Design of the ‘Water Cube’ National Swimming Centre for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games,” there were many stakeholders involved in this massive project. Lessons learned ranged from project design to effective communication. Managing communications for a large, complex project such as this requires careful planning and ongoing assessment of the effectiveness of the communication.
