Communication Plan – Simple Template

Here is a simple communication plan template that I use to keep track of communicating reusable software assets. It is very lightweight and can be easily put up on a wiki or a web page and kept upto date.

Feel free to customize it to suit your particular needs. Here is how I use it:
Date – Target date when a particular communication going to be delivered
Channel – Channel of communication (intranet, newsletter, email announcement, formal meetings)
Audience- Audience for the communication (managers, developers, architects)
Purpose – Purpose of communication might be to increase technical design knowledge, metrics/investment rationale, teach/educate, increase awareness, a call for participation/action etc.
Reusable Asset(s) in focus: List of reusable assets (template, pattern, library, component, service, etc) being communicated

Like with everything else it is more important to be disciplined about this exercise rather than anything else.
