Communication in Project Management

Think about all of the stakeholders and colleagues that must be kept up to date on the status of your project. The recipient of your communication may be upstream (higher on the organizational chart), lateral (an equal organizationally), or downstream (i.e. end user) in relation to the project. A student in a prior CGE course compared communication in project management to the five rights of medication administration…we need to give:

The right person
The right information
(via) the right route
(at) the right time
(in) the right dose
Identify two people, at two different levels (upstream, lateral, downstream) that you need to communicate with for your project and compare/contrast your communication with them based on each of the five rights of communication.

MSN-ST Collaboration Café

Guidelines and Grading Rubric

Purpose
Within the MSN Specialties Track, you will engage and dialog with classmates in a Collaboration Café discussion assignment. The Collaboration Café is an interactive assignment that encourages meaningful application of course concepts, discussion of nurse-practice issues, and student leadership to prompt continued conversations in order to facilitate achievement of course learning outcomes. In order for students to lead and facilitate discussion within the collaboration café, course instructors will take a less active role in daily posting, but will remain present to monitor the discussion for compliance and to offer clarification.

Due Date:

· For Collaboration Café Assignments that take place during weeks 1 – 7, the due date for the initial posting is Wednesday 11:59 pm MT; the due date for responsive postings is Sunday 11:59 pm MT of the week that corresponds with the assigned collaboration café.

· For Collaboration Café Assignments that take place during week 8, the due date for the initial posting is Wednesday 11:59 pm MT; the due date for responsive postings is Saturday 11:59 pm MT, at the end of week 8.

· Due to the interactive nature of this assignment, all Collaboration Café postings must occur within the week that they are assigned. Late submissions are not permitted for grading.

Total Points Possible: 50 points / 25 points

Assignment Overview
Like the weekly Threaded Discussion, the Collaboration Café opens on the Sunday preceding the start of a designated week, and ends on Sunday at 11:59 pm MT at the end of the designated week (weeks 1-7), and by Saturday at 11:59 pm MT at the end of week 8.

In each Collaboration Café, students are expected to post a minimum of 3 postings, to include the following:

· Initial response

· Response to at least two separate peers on separate days from the initial response

Dialogue must be substantive and collaborative in nature, addressing specific concepts and topics noted in the Collaboration Café question and prompting further discussion among peers.

Scholarly references are not required in the Collaboration Café discussions; however, if the student chooses to submit a reference, APA format must be followed. There may also be times when faculty will have you review a website or article. In cases like these, you must properly cite and reference according to APA to avoid plagiarism.

Faculty may submit any student’s post to Turnitin in order to verify originality of work. Plagiarism will result in a zero for the week. Uncivil comments toward peers or faculty, in any of the posts, will not be tolerated and will result in a zero for the week.

The initial posting must meet the following expectations:

· Addresses the collaboration café question in a thorough, substantive manner.

· Demonstrates application of course concepts.

· Discusses implications for advanced nursing practice.

· Includes correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, sentence, and paragraph structure.

· If sources are included, APA format for citation and referencing is correctly applied.

The responsive postings must meet the following expectations:

· Responds to 2 separate classmates with substantive dialogue that is collaborative in nature.

· The response postings must occur on a different day from the initial posting.

· Responsive postings ask questions, offer new insights, applications, perspectives, information, or implications for practice in order to facilitate further discussion.

Communication Plan

[Student Name Here]

Chamberlain College of Nursing

NR 631: Nurse Executive Concluding Graduate Experience

September/October 2018

Running head: COMMUNICATION PLAN 1

COMMUNICATION PLAN 1

Communication Plan

The project focus is on the inclusion of HRO Principles in conjunction with traditional pressure injury prevention strategies in the prevention of pressure injuries for the critical care patient population. Within this project, the stakeholders include the project sponsor (AVP of nursing), resource staff nurses know as SWAN Nurses (skin and wound assessment nurses), Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses (WOCN’s), Nursing Quality Coordinator, Nurse Managers (for all four critical care units), multidisciplinary team members, and the critical care nursing staff. Project plan and interventions will need to be communicated to all staff members (AM and PM Shifts) within four different critical care units. Traditional means of project communication include meetings, power point presentations, newsletters, minutes with summary of project highlights/next steps, and email updates. Will also be utilizing an online collaborative discussion forum site and skype ability for meeting attendance to ensure meaningful communication to the maximal number of individuals.

Effective communication is a critical aspect of project-based change management; poor communication has been associated with project failures (Parker, Kunde, & Zeppetella, 2017). Communication influences trust, commitment to the project, project coordination, and team member collaboration (Rimkuniene & Zinkeviciute, 2014). Team involvement and consideration for individual contributions and suggestions is important to the success of any project. In any project team meeting, it is important to establish ground rules where everyone’s input is encouraged and respected. Healthcare is challenging because team members work different shifts, many team members work only three days per week & may have difficulty coming to work when not scheduled a full shift, and unit needs may preclude a team member from joining a meeting that they intending to be a part of. Projects are increasingly complex and require integration of technology as well as flexibility to effectively communicate with all project team members that often may have differing cultural backgrounds, familiarity with technology, come from different generations, and live in various geographic locations (Parker et al., 2017).

Believe an important communication strategy for this project will be the initial team meetings with project stakeholders. Will utilize both meeting space along with ability to skype into the meeting from home (if not scheduled on a specific day). Kick off meetings can promote building of a rapport and trust as well as create an environment of open, transparent communication among team members (Downing, 2015). Additionally, a kick off meeting can help to introduce the goal of the project as well as role responsibilities (Downing, 2015). For any meeting it is important to begin with introductions, so each member is familiar with members of the project team. Especially since project members may have independent work and need share information learned/work progress with the team on an ongoing basis. The kick off meeting allows for introductions as well as discussion on project background, goal setting, definition of scope, and establishment of deliverables (Downing, 2015). Making sure that team members understand the why behind the project is important. This information is also useful in establishing project goals as well as a timeline.

Biweekly SWAN meetings allowing for meaningful discussion of work, barriers encounters, and feedback is essential. The use of a collaborative discussion forum site will be very helpful and allow for exchange of information, ideas, and suggestions from the critical care SWAN team over the course of a two-week timeframe (between meetings) with sharing of unit specific skin rounds audit results are important communication strategies. The SWAN team shares a monthly newsletter with divisional staff as a means for both education and communication. Additionally, the chair of the SWAN committee attends the critical care shared governance divisional coordinating council where project information, next steps, and progress will be shared with other staff leaders in shared governance.

The project manager will be responsible for sharing biweekly project status update reports with the project sponsor along with the project team and unit leadership. A formal presentation at the multidisciplinary attended Critical Care Committee will ensure that all the entire interprofessional team is both aware of the project and is engaged in interventions as appropriate. Nurse managers for the four critical care units are part of the project team and will be charged with sharing project information and progress in unit staff meetings and through weekly management updates. Nurse educators and clinical nurse specialists will be responsible for communication of educational material through HealthStream, the online education system that tracks completion compliance. Lastly, the nursing quality coordinator will be responsible for compiling HAPI incidence information from the organizational event reporting system and communicating this specific information from a unit-based perspective as well as developing charts/graphs to aid in understanding the data. This data will be displayed in each of the units on the unit’s quality board. Planning celebrations at project milestones can help also create enthusiasm and excitement about the project plan.

In conclusion, choosing the medium and manner of communication can be as important as the message itself and the timeliness of the delivery (Musynska, 2018). Effective, meaningful communication strategies are associated with successful project outcomes. It is important that communication is planned to consider the various approaches possible and preference of the audience (Musynska, 2018). In Attachment A below, please find specifics of the project plan including stakeholder/project member information, preferred communication method, timing associated with communication, and responsible party for the specific communication (report prepared by information).
