Have you struggled with communication on a project you’ve worked on? If so, you’re not alone. Hundreds if not thousands of projects fall short or fail entirely because of poor communication.
What is project communication? It is the communication that takes place among project stakeholders and is related to some aspect of the project and its execution. Why is it important? Because it is how projects get done! Communication is how stakeholders understand what the project is about, how it will affect them, and what role they may be expected to play.
The good news is, no matter what your role on the project – whether you’re the project manager, a team member, a sponsor or a stakeholder – you can play a role in improving communication. You might not be able to change the schedule or the budget or the scope, but you CAN change the way you communicate, and set an example for effective communication for the rest of the project team.
This book presents a new way to look at communication within projects. It combines real-world examples and practical tips with theory, research, and professional standards you can apply to any size and type of project. Gain actionable insights into identifying your audience, choosing the right tools, managing change, and handling conflict. Expand your professional toolkit with templates, activities, and resources.
