Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Casey Ayers, and welcome to my course, Project Communications Management. This course is the tenth entry in our newly updated series, helping you prepare for the latest version of the PMP exam, based on the sixth edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge, better known as the PMBOK Guide. By completing this course, and others in our PMP prep series, you'll not only be better prepared to ace the certification exam, but critically, we'll also completely fulfill the mandatory training requirement that must be met before taking the exam. Some of the major topics we'll cover in this course include the importance of effective communications in the project environment, how to create a winning strategy for communicating with your project team and the full gamut of project stakeholders, how to execute your communications plan while project work is underway, and how to monitor communications efforts and identify ways to consistently refine and improve communication results. By the end of this course, you'll be better prepared to provide your team with the information they need and to activate and engage stakeholders as advocates and champions for your project. This course, and others in the series, can not only help you learn more about project management and prepare for the PMP exam, but also serve as a great refresher for established project managers and as an opportunity to earn continuing education credit. I hope you'll join me on this journey to prepare for the PMP exam and learn more about project communications management here at Pluralsight.
