Module 9: Project Communication among Stakeholders

Module Overview

Communication is one of the essential processes in project management and life. It denotes the exchange of information from one point of the project or from one individual to another using efficient or strategic approaches. Over the years, scholars have emphasized the importance of communication in project management. While communication is already deemed necessary in project management, the process is continually growing in importance and deems the core of successful project management. It is mainly because most project management processes are dependent on communication for productivity and efficacy. In retrospect, communication in project management can be referred to as project communication management. The module will evaluate the different Project Communications Management processes. The processes will evaluate why communication is necessary during project management. For instance, project management communication is crucial since it ensures that the information needs of the project and its stakeholders are met. Therefore, project communication management is a critical process that evaluates a given project’s communication needs and the project stakeholders while ensuring that these needs are met. The module will also evaluate the different stages and types of project communication.
