Unformatted text preview: nformation Distribution--making needed information available to project stakeholders in a timely manner. 10.3 Performance Reporting--collecting and disseminating performance information. This includes status reporting, progress measurement, and forecasting. 10.4 Administrative Closure--generating, gathering, and disseminating information to formalize a phase or project completion. These processes interact with each other and with the processes in the other knowledge areas as well. Each process may involve effort from one or more individuals or groups of individuals, based on the needs of the project. Each process generally occurs at least once in every project phase. Although the processes are presented here as discrete elements with welldefined interfaces, in practice they may overlap and interact in ways not detailed here. Process interactions are discussed in detail in Chapter 3. The general management skill of communicating (discussed in Section 2.4.2) is related to, but not the same as, project communications management. Communicating is a broader subject and involves a substantial body of knowledge that is not unique to the project context. For example: Sender-receiver models--feedback loops, barriers to communications, etc. Choice of media--when to communicate in writing versus when to communicate orally, when to write an informal memo versus when to write a formal report, etc. Project Project Management Management Body of Body of KnowledgeE L KnowledgeE PL MP AM SA S A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) 2000 Edition 2000 Project Management Institute, Four Campus Boulevard, Newtown Square, PA 19073-3299 USA NAVIGATION LINKS ACROYMNS LIST ACRONYMS LIST 117 ACROYMNS LIST Chapter 10--Project Communications Management Figure 101 | 10.1.1.1 PROJECT COMMUNICATIONS MANAGEMENT 10.1 Communications Planning
