Terri Echegoyen and Mark Phillipy continue to study for the CAPM exam. In this session we cover Chapter 10 Project Communications Management of the PMBOK. This is the tenth session in the mentoring series “Preparing for the CAPM”. Mark and Terri study together out of the fifth edition of the PMBOK as Terri gets ready to take the CAPM exam.
Preparing for the CAPM Series
I received such great feedback about “Preparing for the CAPM” series, I have decided to increase its value to those who are preparing to take the CAPM exam. In doing so, I have packaged the series into a full blown CAPM Prep program. The new and better series is the center of the site. To kick this program off, I have created a Free Webinar “Preparing for the CAPM”. To sign up for the webinar, select the “Tell Me More” button in the graphic below.
What is covered in this Session?
During the podcast you will learn about the following Communications Management Processes:
- Plan Communications Management

- Basic Communication Model
- Different ways communications occur
- Mark & Terri’s thoughts on how to make meetings more effective.
Importance of Communications to a Project Manager
Some have estimated that a project manager spends 85% – 90% of their time communicating. Communications is such an important part of project management, development of your communication skills is essential to becoming a successful project manager. I encourage any project manager to continually study and develop your communications skills.
Schedule Your Exam
With only a few more sessions before the end of this series, if you have not yet scheduled to take your exam, I encourage you to do so today. I found as I prepared to take the PMP exam, once I scheduled my exam, that commitment increased my focus and helped be be prepared. So…go schedule for your exam right now.
