design liaison coach links board
level and project participants.
The person needs the skills to
improve communication between
the different aspects of the
project, and acts less as a
supervisor than as a
communications coach. S/he helps
engineers to appreciate the
thinking of designers, and
the same for the other points of
interaction between disciplines.
The free exchange of information
is essential, so it is an
internal role rather than one
for an external consultant.
