It's a cliché that developer are anti-social creatures, but the reality is communication is at the center of everything. Knowing how to communicate, when and to who is really important so projects can stay on track.

100%, learnt that the hard way.
Knowing how, when, and where to communicate is important, it's easier to steer in another direction when you know early than afterwards when it's too late.

Technical skills are important too, of course, but they're, if lacking, easier to learn than right communication.
