Project Communications Plan Template
Good communications among all stakeholders is key for the success of a project. It’s important to ensure your project team develops a communication plan so that lack of communication does not derail your goals. Use this project communications planning template to identify the stakeholders and audience you need to communicate with, the method of the communication, the frequency and the individuals responsible for executing the plan.
To help you understand how this template works, we’ve provided some samples. To maintain this readability, ensure that the information can fit across a single sheet of paper when printed (either vertically or horizontally) or can be displayed within a single window on screen.
