I have recently joined an existing large, complex project to deliver some specific outputs. The only information that the PM gave me related directly to the part of the project that I am responsible for, and not to the wider aspects of the project. I can do my part without knowing much about the rest of the project, but it would be nice to understand the whole.
What should a PM communicate to new team members if they join mid-project?
Just to clarify, my role is to bring in some temporary technical resources that will deliver short term support while the organization decides what level of permanent staff will be needed to fill the roles, and after a few months they will go into the market to recruit. This is a one-off piece of work that doesn't involve any development, coding, or anything of that nature.
