Communicating to stakeholders is a critical piece of project management. In this project, we will create a Communication Management Plan in Google Docs. This plan helps the project manager and the project team understand the types of updates needed, the data to be included, the method of report distribution and the audiences for all project reports. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.


At least 2 years business experience + at least 1 year project based work.
