communication channels

 hi all,

i have a little confusion over a question in Kim Heldman's review questions, chapter 5. in question no.15, there are 8 stake holders, so many channels of communications will be there.? will project manager himself will be added or not ? i added PM to the communications channel. but it went wrong. can anyone explain when the PM should be included & when not?

regards

 No of Communication Channel involves calculating communication channel which exists between stakeholders. PM is a stakeholder so no need to add it again if the no of stakeholder has been already mentioned
