The communication management plan is created during the plan communications management process. It involves using information about the stakeholders, the project information that needs to be shared, timing, legal or confidentiality constraints, and available communication technology. It is subsidiary to the overall project management plan.
One of the key purposes of the communication management plan is to manage stakeholder engagement. Some of the stakeholder information is who will...
- supply the information to be communicated,
- be responsible to release the communication,
- receive the information.
Some other documents that may be part of the plan or released separately and referred to in the plan:
In addition to defining who will receive what communications and when, the communications management plan defines the level of detail, how updates to the plan will be made, and tools, templates, and/or guidelines for the project communications.
