About the Program

From Aristotle to Web 2.0: What PMs Need to Know About Communications

Smart communications practices are critical for a successful project. Unfortunately, communications teams are often viewed solely as being in the business of publishing information, pushing information out into a marketplace or an organization. The truth is that truly effective communications focuses on persuasion (traditionally referred to as rhetoric): convincing an audience to follow a project’s new policies, buy a new product, or change their daily behavior. This presentation will cover the basics of rhetoric and the real-world communications activities needed to persuade an audience, and provide project managers with a framework for integrating effective communications into their own project plans and strategies.
