I'm an IT architect on a project with a 10+ agile people in the team and I have a problem that my manager sometimes ask project-related questions random people from the team or discuss them with some other people and this leads to rumours. I want to ask my manager to route all important high-level questions about the project to me. How would you structure email/conversation to communicate that to show the importance of this? I thought to start like this:
as you assigned me to be an IT architect on this project, I also need sometimes your help to succeed in this role. In particular, I need to follow-up on the questions you asked our team members in the past. Examples:
In the future, would you be supportive to send all these questions to me?
Any recommendations? Any additional suggestions?
