Discussion Questions:

1.

What are the four main processes in project communications management?

Briefly describe each process.

Communications planning involves determining the information and communications

needs of the stakeholders: who needs what information, when will they need it, and

how will the information be given to them. The output of this process is a

communications management plan.

Information distribution involves making needed information available to project

stakeholders in a timely manner. The main outputs of this process are updates to

organizational process assets and requested changes.

Performance reporting involves collecting and disseminating performance

information, including status reports, progress measurement, and forecasting. The

outputs of this process are performance reports, forecasts, requested changes,

recommended corrective actions, and updates to organizational process assets.

Managing stakeholders involves managing communications to satisfy the needs and

expectations of project stakeholders and to resolve issues. The outputs of this process

are resolved issues, approved change requests and corrective actions, and updates to

organizational process assets and the project management plan.
