Plan and Manage Project Communications (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

It is commonly said that up to 90% of a project manager's time is spent communicating, whether it's with external stakeholders, members of the project team, suppliers, or other managers within the organization. That speaks volumes about the important role of communication to a project. When communications break down, projects fail. When communications are good, the project is more likely to achieve its objectives. Healthy project communication means that the right people are getting the right information at the right time. They are able to make informed decisions. They understand what is going on and are able to proceed with their work. Communications management is one of the most essential functions of a project manager. Project managers need to plan out a strategy to ensure that needed information is gathered and produced efficiently. In this course learners will learn how to plan and manage project communications. Learners will be introduced to best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with the PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013.

Control Project Communications (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

A project manager is the communication hub through whom all project information flows. A project manager may receive and distribute dozens of messages per day. Customers, suppliers, project team members, and company executives all rely on the project manager for up-to-date information. Controlling these communications is critical to the project, and it's the project manager's responsibility to ensure that the planned flow of project communications continues so that the needs of both the project stakeholders and the project itself are met. This course emphasizes the importance of the Control Communications process and guides the learner through the tools and techniques that can be used for controlling communications throughout the life of a project. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. It will also assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® Certification Exam.
