Explicit awareness of personal communication competence in project management communication unfolds opportunities to influence key project stakeholders at any given level. Clear and focused personal communication exceeds any IT system and therefore it pays off to invest in good project communication. However, from a project investment perspective companies are focused on IT, performance measurement; project monitoring, project development and project management systems with the purpose of meeting deadlines for delivery and gaining profit. But when deadlines and expectations are not met, when customers are not satisfied, it is a result of poor human communication - not because Excel or any other IT system fails in calculating a given situation.The importance of considering project communication strategically is a well established requirement within project management. Ongoing stakeholder analysis enables the project manager to continuously monitor and consider the ‘who’, ‘what’, ‘when’, ‘why’ and to some extent the ‘how’ of communication of information to stakeholders. What still remains to be explored is the ‘how’ of personal communication competence.
