Communications management

Communications, like Human Resources, provides a basic vehicle for management, especially project management. As originally put forward by Henri Fayol (c. 1916) and amplified by subsequent thinkers of the process school, management is a process that consists of: Planning, including forecasting; Organizing, including staffing; Commanding, including motivating and maintaining activity; Directing, including coordinating; and Controlling, including monitoring. Each of these activities relies heavily on both the Communications and Human Resources functions. Therefore, an understanding of both of these project management functions is essential to successful project management.
