Tips for effectively crafting your project communications

When should I start sending communications?

I’ve never heard of anyone getting fired for over-communicating. You’ve probably heard the advice that it is always better to over-communicate than under-communicate. I prefer sharing high-level communications months before a change, then 4 – 6 weeks prior to the change, I strategically craft the messaging and increase the frequency to weekly. 

Communications should not stop once the change happens or when your project goes into production. You’ll want to keep your stakeholders engaged with post-change/go-live communications. Not planning for post-implementation communications can be detrimental to the change management progress you’ve made leading up to that point. Some post-change communications can include:

  1. Post-go-live reminders 
  2. Post-go-live tips
  3. Post-go-live best practices

Every project has a change element, and how you communicate that change and keep your stakeholders informed is very important to the success of your project and change adoption in your organization. What tips do you have for creating project communications?
