Is Your Lack of Risk Management Hurting You?

Risk management is, essentially, the process by which you identify and analyze the various risks that are associated with any project, no matter how large or small. This is important because it gives you the chance, during the planning process, to figure out what risks might end up affecting your project. That way, you can take steps to avoid those potential risks becoming a real problem. And, if those risks do become reality, you can immediately take action.

How to Create a Project Communication Plan

Creating a clear communication plan can help you effectively collaborate with your team, client, and stakeholders. Like other tools that you’ll use for the duration of a project, this plan will set straightforward guidelines that everyone will follow to stay on the same page as they work on meeting goals.

What’s a Project Communication Plan?

This plan outlines the methods that will be used to share information (think: meetings, emails, phone calls, status reports, discussion boards, etc.). And it also covers when information will be shared, who will be sharing it, and who will be receiving it. Plus, it gives everyone the opportunity to provide critical feedback that can help ensure a project’s success.

The Value of Training

Training is Valuable

Organizations everywhere are becoming increasingly aware that skills gaps are lowering their chances of finding and keeping capable employees. Educators and employers have different perceptions of college graduates entering the field: 72 percent of educational institutions believe recent graduates are ready for work, but only 42 percent of employers agree. So, many organizations believe there’s a problem when it comes to hiring employees with the necessary skills. But what may be less clear is that failing to address skills gaps through training can also make it harder to retain worthy employees, who may be frustrated at not being able to grow and develop their skill set.

Tips for Effective Communication

Every day we are required to communicate, whether verbally or non verbally, through e-mail or in person. When you’re getting ready for that big business deal, interviewing for that job you’ve been dreaming of, teaching a coworker a new skill, or managing a meeting, it’s imperative that your communication skills be top-notch. This is true whether you are the speaker or the listener in the situation. Neither can be effective without the other. We speak for many reasons, but the main reason is to be heard. We listen to learn, but mostly to understand.

Communication problems often start with the way the speaker delivers their message, and the way the listener receives that message. With this in mind, here are some tips on what you can do as a speaker and as a listener to make sure communication is as effective as possible. I’ve thrown in a few tips for written communication as well.
