The Plan Communications Management is a project management process that is involved in the development of the necessary approach for the project communication based on the needs and requirements pertaining to information. It is also based on the available organizational asset of the program.
This particular process is under the Project Communications Management. The benefit of this particular project management process is that it helps to identify and document the plans, approaches or strategies in communicating effectively with the stakeholders.
To create the Plan Communications Management, necessary inputs are needed such as the project management plan, organizational process assets, and enterprise environmental factors. The project manager also needs to get the stakeholder register to know who the stakeholders are.
It is important to take note that this project management process can be iterated as long as it is triggered by the Control Communications process. This means that this process has a continuous nature and can be triggered by the comparison of the actual and planned schedule, cost, and quality. Lastly, it is crucial for the project manager to evaluate the information to ensure that the right message is delivered to the stakeholders.
