Everyone agrees that good communication is important for project success. Yet, how many of us actually plan for communication in our projects? Or, do we just “let it happen”?

Successful projects require a documented plan for communicating with all people on the project, including but not limited to: project managers, team members, stakeholders, vendors and support people. Once the individuals are identified, it’s important to identify what type of information needs to be shared, how it will be shared, and when we communicate.

Join us to explore the components and complexities of building a project communication plan.

We will cover:

  • Who to communicate to?
  • What to communicate?
  • When and how often to communicate?
  • How to select the best media (in person, phone, email, etc.)
  • As well as other considerations, such as location (the next office, across the country, or around the world), cultures, and generational differences.
