Exploring FLOW Distance in Project Communication Collaboration in a software project is affected by team spirit, perceived closeness or distance between team members, and by the effectiveness of working together. Communication style and the degree of indirection in communication could have an impact on all of the above-mentioned parameters. A FLOW model represents the paths, modes, and media used in the communication of a particular project. The models cover document-based as well as direct and oral communication. This paper explores ways of defining and using FLOW distance as an indicator for diagnosis and prediction of project dynamics.
