Nobody denies that Communication Skills can guarantee success in building friendship, promoting ideas, leading people, problem solving and influencing others no matter inside the organization or externally in the business world. Project Manager requires really strong communication skills in order to ensure project success. However, communication is two-way rather than one-way most of the time. Improper communication skills would frustrate others and lead them to no place, or even exit the project. When project stakeholders become hard to understand you, they become less co-operative and finally increase the project failure rate. This class is compliant to PMBOK v6 and delivers not only basic skills but also skills applicable to different types of people in projects. Class will be delivered interactively via games, exercises and discussion. Effective communication skills can draw other’s attention and work with you.

The class objectives are to:
  • Elaborate communication models
  • Remove communication roadblocks
  • Apply effective communication techniques in projects
  • Effectively communicate with different stakeholders
  • Deal with conflicts
  • Define communication plan
Target audiences:  project manager; project stakeholders; professionals who prepare to pass PMP exam
Remarks: the PMBOK® Guide (Sixth Edition) is the globally recognized standard for the project management profession. This class will cover the best practices and processes in project communication management.
