G03 - Conduct a focused communication

This management activity belongs to the post-project management activity group: a 3- to 6-month cycle of activities that start after the project ends and continues for 1 to 5 years. This activity group may be merged with that of other finished projects in a central portfolio management system.

The same person who was the sponsor for the project is responsible for this cycle, unless this responsibility is transferred to someone else.

Send a short message to announce the benefits realized from the project and the plans for improving them. This information may be shared with a small group of authorized people in the organization (e.g., managers and directors), or with everyone. The preference is to share it with everyone.


This is a continuous reminder for the recipients that projects are done for their benefit, and they need to consider this in their current and future projects.
