We are pleased to announce PMI has accepted our new 2 day Communication Workshop, The Science and Art of Communicating Effectively for presentation immediately after the 2009 Asia Pacific Global Congress in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For more on the Congress scheduled for 9 – 11 February 2009 see: http://congresses.pmi.org/AsiaPacific2008/nextyearscongress.cfm
Our communication workshop is focused on helping participants learn how to craft an effective communication strategy to support the successful delivery of their projects and programs. The workshop is designed to provide project and program managers with the skills needed to create effective messages that are focused:
- On the right people
- At the right time and carry
- The right information in the right format
Participants will learn how to craft an effective communication strategy to support the successful delivery of their projects and programs, with a particular emphasis on the subtle art of ‘managing upwards’. This is critical because your project will only be considered successful if its key stakeholders perceive the project’s outcome as a success and these perceptions of success or failure are heavily influenced by the effectiveness of the project’s communications, and relationships, with its stakeholder community.
This Two Day workshop provides a framework to:
- Identify and prioritise stakeholders using the Stakeholder Circle® methodology
- Understand the stakeholder’s ‘stake’ in the project and ‘mutuality’
- Design effective communications, particularly for senior managers
- Understand the importance of business and social networks for conveying messages
- Develop techniques for reaching ‘hard to reach’ stakeholders
- Develop an understanding of your personality and how this impacts your ability to communicate effectively
- Develop techniques for communicating for effect in difficult circumstances
- Structure and implement an effective communication plan, and finally
- Monitor the effectiveness of their communications.
We are looking forward to seeing you in KL next year.
