Yes. Turn this into your mantra: "If it's not in writing, it's a  
rumour. And we don't work that way"

And ensure that the 'in writing' bit is somewhere where everyone can  
see it.

Never underestimate the power of whiteboards, even if you've got  
online tracking as your master data; having it in your face where  
everyone can see it instantly is incredibly useful. I have a very  
powerful, expensive online system tracking many factors; I still have  
whiteboards as my ready-reference logs to a couple of key ones (and I  
jump on anyone very hard who doesn't update the whiteboard inline with  
the full master data in the online system).
