Abstract: Managing a large, distributed software-intensive system is a complex and intrinsically difficult task. The system is complex and can involve hundreds of staff, years of skilled effort, large budgets, and potentially thousands of activities. Many perspectives attest to the facts that the delivery of complex systems on time, within cost, and meeting customer requirements is a significant problem, and that the number of complex systems is increasing The most important factor that influences the management of geographically distributed software projects is communication among organizations, customers, the developing teams etc. This paper addresses the challenges of communication in managing these projects..
