Developing project management plans

You'll need a strategic plan for communications, marketing, risks, project integration, human resource, change management, costs and time and more.

Engaging customers, staff and key stakeholders

It's important to get feedback from different user groups throughout the change process so they feel included, involved and heard.

I follow PMI’s practice standards and framework to complete my work.
