Communication Planning – review

You have the communication plan in place but does it all fit together? The project management team should check this part of the plan together and consider:

  • Are all the stakeholders considered in the plan?
  • Does the plan support the project team getting the information and commitment they need from stakeholders?
  • Does it fit with the organisation’s context and other activity?
  • Has risk management looked at and planned for communication activity?
  • Have the right resources scheduled?
  • Is there a training plan to make those involved more effective?

Now review the project objective and budget. Check that what you have planned drives the project towards its goal and is proportionately affordable.

Finally, schedule time for the project management team to check the communication plans again at major milestones. The plan may need to change: projects change direction, organisational contexts change and stakeholders change their views.
