Communicating Projects is all about helping projects to succeed through communication. Often considered a ‘soft skill’ good communication has its roots in theory and careful planning and is anything but ‘soft’. It’s tough to get right. Sometimes it feels like you can never get it right!

But it is incredibly rewarding when project stakeholders ‘get’ what the project is doing and want to be involved. Not all projects have the luxury of a large, experienced communication team and this book is aimed at those practitioners who suddenly find themselves in a project communication role but maybe without any experience in this specialist discipline. It will also be helpful to project managers who need to commission communication work by setting out what they should expect from their communication function.

The book includes some toolkit items – for example, a template for a communication strategy and for those that enjoy a bit of theory, vignettes explore key themes in more detail.
