The aim of the CHD is to develop a project which will contain a database that will store information about various type of disease . By holding this vast amount of disease record this database will be able to diseases quickly. Thus by identifying the disease quickly, it can provide the perfect way of treatment of the identified disease. To successfully complete this project some financial funding is required. The project manager can arrange this financial funding from the external stakeholders of the project. Full support of the stakeholders can be achieved by proper communication. For this reason, to get the full support of the stakeholders, the project manager of the CHD has proposed a communication plan.
In this proposed communication plan first, some major stakeholders are identified. These major stakeholders include sponsors, government agencies, senior management, clients, sub-contractors, employees, community and the news media. The communication with the clients will be done through the telephone, emails and by meetings. The project schedule will decide the time of the communication and the communication will be done in a formal language with high details . With the clients of the project, senior management, employees, sponsor and team members of the project will be communicated in the same way. As this communication method is fulfilling all the basic needs of the communication, it can be considered enough real which is able to drive the project in the path of the success. Providing the detailed information about the project is the key way to keep the project stakeholders happy. As more than one communication medium is selected the disturbance in the communication can be avoided.
Suppliers and the subcontractors are omitted from the project as they are not required for the project. So, communication with these stakeholders is not needed. The other stakeholders which are the unions, government agencies, news and media and the community are not important such as the clients. These stakeholders are not important because they are not benefiting the project like the other stakeholders . The public safety-related information is shared with the government agencies, news media and with the unions and communities. The public safety-related information is shared with the above mentioned stakeholders because the internal information is required by those stakeholders. The details are shared to them whenever they request about it. Thus it is determined that the proposed process of the communication is real enough for the project success.
Assessed Communication Plan vs. Practices of Project Management:
A good communication plan is one of the main project management practices which is required for a successful project implementation. This good communication must exist between some individuals who are related to the project. These individuals are known as the project stakeholders. These stakeholders are two types. One is the internal stakeholders and another one is the external stakeholders. This project has successfully identified all of the stakeholders and how this stakeholder is able to benefit the project is determined . The manager of this project is able to produce the correct communication plan by which all the stakeholders can be communicated simultaneously. This communication plan is able to handle all the stakeholder which is an attribute of an ideal project management practice. With that, this project is divided into some parts which are ideal for a project management practice as perfect planning can be done when the project is divided into some parts .
For a publicly run project some communication plan can be recommended which are discussed below:
- For a publicly run project, the government is a major stakeholder. This is because the permission of the government is needed before starting any project .
- The report of the project cost and the benefit must be provided to the government.
- The strategic framework needs to create before the project execution as this will help communicate with other stakeholders perfectly .
The above-discussed recommendation needs to follow and implemented properly to help the project progress. In this case, the government need to be updated about every single update because the government is the main stakeholder of the publicly run project. As the government actively handle all the cost operation of the project, a proper communication plan is required for communicating with all the other stakeholders of the project with the government.
From the discussion of the above document, it is determined that the project stakeholders play a vital role in the case of the ideal project management principles. The stakeholders of the project give the opportunity to the project manager to complete a project successfully. This document has analysed the case study of the CHD and from the analysis, it is determined whether the proposed communication plan of the project manager is realistic enough or not. It is determined that the proposed communication plan is realistic enough for the successful running of the project. Further, the ideal project management practices are compared with the communication plan for this project. Also, some recommendation is given for the publicly run projects as it differs from the normal project management. Proper justification is given of the recommended communication plan.
In the field of communication, the information system is a huge advancement towards the technical development. his technology of the information system is able to solve problems of various departments which includes the health sectors also . A specific type of information can be tracked by the information system based on the needs of the users.
In the given case study, the information system is used by the CHD or by the Country Health Department to track the information which is related to their prior task. The main problem with the information system of the CHD is that it cannot be expanded in the future. Understanding this problem the CHD has initiated some communication plan to mitigate this issue.
This report will evaluate the proposed communication plan of the CHD to understand that whether it is enough real or not which can be used for communicating with all of the project stakeholders. Following the evaluation part, a comparison will be done between the case study assessment of the CHD and practices of the project management. Further, a recommendation plan will be provided for the proposed communication plan to enhance it more. At the last a conclusion part will summarize the whole project.
