Communications in Complex Projects can be a daunting task for the Program Manager and for team members. Human performance improvements for project team members can be facilitated and nurtured by effective communication planning.
The Project Management Institute "Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK) addresses many communication considerations that all project managers should consider at the very beginning - the inception and planning stage of their project. This discussion will review those considerations and show how use of scheduling tools can identify critical project needs, "look aheads," and methods to provide early dispute resolution to assure individual and program success.
Reg Parker, PMP, is a Freescale Semiconductor Global Program Manager with extensive experience in managing large capital, multi-year, and multinational programs. He will discuss the "Communication" knowledge domain as defined by the Project Management Institute "Body of Knowledge" and show examples of how properly created schedules can enhance reporting efficacy and create focus points of communication for individuals and teams.
