Due Week 7: Communication Plan

According to the PMBOK® Guide, “the Communications Planning process determines the information and communications needs of the stakeholders; for example, who needs what information, when they will need it, how it will be given to them, and by whom.” In other words, it lists the general communication requirements for the project.

This week, you will create a simple communication plan for the execution of your project. This plan should have the following information: contact information for all affected parties, major deliverables and how progress on the deliverables will be communicated to the affected parties (as well as who the affected parties are and when communication will take place), and any other miscellaneous information about communication on the project (see the Communications Plan template in Doc Sharing).


  • Business memo summarizing the submission for the week
  • Communication plan

If working in a team, include a statement of participation, describing how each person contributed to this project deliverable. Please have each person sign the statement.
