Project Management as Communications Management
(Warsaw School of Economics)
In this section, the main concepts discussed in the article will be outlined. A project is a temporary endeavour with a beginning and an end, which creates a unique product, service or result. It is progressively elaborated, which means that distinguishing characteristics of each unique project will be progressively detailed as the project is better understood (PMBOK 2008: 5). Project Communication is the exchange of project-specific information with an emphasis on creating understanding between the sender and the receiver (Project Communication Handbook 2007: 2). In this definition an important trait of an effective communication has been emphasised, which is the involvement of both the sender and the receiver. “Project Communications Management includes the processes required to ensure timely and appropriate generation, collection, distribution, storage, retrieval, and ultimate disposition of project information” (PMBOK 2008: 243).
