OVERVIEW

There is no question that in today’s complex business environment communication is more important than ever. As the pressure to deliver projects faster, at a lower cost, and with the functionality required to help innovate and improve business results, those involved in projects need to be able to effectively communicate with a broad stakeholder group to understand needs, influence direction, and achieve results. Communication can be very challenging. People have different needs, and as stakeholder groups become broader and more communication is done through virtual mediums, the potential for miscommunication dramatically increases. 

In this course, you will acquire the skills and knowledge required to improve the effectiveness of communication with stakeholders.
