Communications planning results in a methodology to structure and disseminate information concerning the program/project. A critical link in the process chain, the Communications Plan details how the Program/Project status will be reported to ensure the effort is fully understood and supported by all stakeholders, with no costly surprises. The plan also allows an opportunity for discussion, review and making recommendations for improvements.
An effective communications management plan is critical to the success of a telecommunications program. It provides all program stakeholders with information regarding how resources are being utilized and task/milestones are being accomplished thus assuring that program objectives are being met.
