ExpatInfoDesk Communications Management 1. Introduction 1.1. Purpose and Scope of the Communications Management Plan The purpose of this document is to define the communications goals and strategies of the Upside Down project. These high-level strategies and goals are intended to provide guidance in planning and measuring results of the current and future communications efforts. The Upside Down Communications Management Plan (CMP) defines the project’s structure and methods of information collection, screening, formatting, and distribution of project information. It also outlines understanding among project teams regarding the actions and processes necessary to facilitate the critical links among people, ideas, and information that are necessary for project success. The overall objective of a Communications Management Plan is to promote the success of a project by meeting the information needs of project stakeholders and outline the goals of the communications efforts to reach and inform each group. Without detailed plans for communications activities that identify the organisational, policy, and material resources needed to carry them out, the Upside Down project will not be able to secure needed resources, coordinate efforts with other groups, or report its activities and results to key oversight stakeholders. Communications planning activities identify the appropriate level of communication for each project stakeholder, what information should be distributed and the frequency of communications. This plan should also include the vehicle of communications (email, face to face meetings, etc). The risk of insufficient planning could result in failure to accomplish key project objectives, duplication of effort, and reduced stakeholder confidence.
