About Lesson

Developing effective communication plans is essential when implementing change within an organisation. These plans serve various purposes, including decision-making, building stakeholder relationships, and enhancing the organisation’s reputation.

A well-structured communication plan should outline objectives, target audiences, key messages, communication channels, distribution methods, and responsible parties. It’s crucial to tailor messages to different stakeholder groups and consider factors like emotional appeal, language, and design. Communication channels can include emails, posters, handouts, websites, and social media. Regular review and adjustment of the plan are necessary to ensure it meets its objectives. Additionally, leaders should actively champion change, and organisational culture and behaviors should be considered in the change process.
