7.7 Communication Management
The following strategies have been established to promote effective communication within and about this project:
The Project Manager presents the project status to the Project Owner on a weekly basis; however, ad hoc meetings will be established at the project manager’s discretion as issues or change control items arise.

The Project Owner will be notified via email on all urgent issues. Issue notification will include time constraints, and impacts, which will identify the urgency of the request for service.
The project team will have weekly update/status meetings to review completed tasks and determine current work priorities. Minutes will be produced from all meetings.
The project manager will provide the project sponsors with project team minutes and steering committee status reports.
A project collaborate web site will be established on the Internet to provide access to the project documentation by geographically dispersed project members.
