**General Rule - Communication channel calculation ***
Randy is managing a project and identifies that there are 8 stakeholders in the project. He is worried that he might end up with an unmanageable number of communication channels. In your view, how many communication channels does Randy have to plan for?
Per my understanding , always include PM in the calculation , so here it would be 8+1 = 9 member
= (9*8)/2 = 36
Any scenerio when we will only consider those numbers that is explicitely mentioned in the question ? , ex : here : 8 members hence ,
= (8*7)/2 = 28
Please advise ...
