### Difference between Stakaholder Management Plan and Communications Management Plan

Stakeholder and Communications Management Plans store similar information and telling them from each other can sometimes be confusing.

There is however one clear distinction. Communications Management Plan is more about means of communications and communication models while the Stakeholder Management Plan stresses more about where or why of communication. For instance when you have an issue or problem and you don't know who you should escalate it to and under what circumstances that should happen.
