Private - Management of Resources, Stakeholders & Communications (2 Days)
About course

Project resource management addresses the processes and functions needed to make most effective use of people involved with projects while project communications management addresses the need to ensure timely and appropriate development and dissemination of information.  Each is inherently connected and reliant on the other in today’s project environment.  Both are concerned with the assurance that the project includes the right people and that the people have the right information at the right time.  In addition, both are concerned with the inclusion in the project of the processes required to ensure that the project will satisfy the needs for which it is undertaken.
