It's difficult to think about communication in the abstract. It's easier to talk about communication by knowing what you're trying to communicate. So I've created a fictional project for this course. The fictional project is a health care database migration. A health care database migration will have a lot of different groups. So it's a good project to give you a broad sense of your communication challenges. Think of yourself as the only project manager. You'll own all of the challenges. The health care database migration is a large project.
You'll be working with several groups. There'll be insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, regulators, and software engineers. The project is to migrate all the hospital's medical data into a large, unstructured data set. The hope is that this new data set will be easier for all the stakeholders to share. There will be several communication challenges with this project. You will want to get the right information to the right people. There will also be many different groups of stakeholders with different interests.
So think about different ways that you can apply the material to these challenges.
