Project Communications And Presentations

Project communications include the medium or the way we communicate, including the following:

• In-person informal communications • In-person formal meeting • Telephone voice mail • Telephone contact with receiver • Telephone contact with human being, not the receiver • Casual note • Informal memorandum • Formal letter or document • Electronic mail • Web pages through the Internet or intranets • Videoconferencing via the Internet

Within some of these there are additional options related to location. We can consciously control which of these we want to use in a project. By considering the time of day, you can predict with some degree of certainty whether the receiver will be present and the degree to which they can focus on what you are saying through your message via the medium.
