Introduction“Communication plays an essential role in keeping a project on track and on schedule. A project manager is in charge of guiding all phases of the project, as well as the communication plan. The details of communication, including the methods and frequencies, will vary depending on the needs of the project. Having an understanding on the purpose of a project communication plan will help a project manager comprehend the goals of the plan and project”(Frost, 2016).ExpectationsAccording toFrost (2016), “The project communication plan sets the standards for how and when communication takes place. As the project manager, you want to set the tone for all communication concerning the project. This allows you to maintain control of the project and ensure all stakeholders receive the necessary information. Set standards for how participants communicate, including email, meetings, phone calls and memos. For regular communication such as meetings, timing is another consideration. Schedule weekly project meetings to keep participants updated on progress”.
