This topic introduces students to the steps necessary for writing up the Communications section of a Business Plan. Students learn about different aspects of communication planning, both for strategic and for tactical purposes. They are introduced to the different sections any Communications Plan should contain and work on developing each one in small groups. While students are guided step-by-step in this process, they also have degree of freedom to come up with an original Communications Plan.
