The professional management of corporate communication is a key success factor for communicators who are increasingly pressured to deliver business results and document their department’s performance. However, communicators often lack a repertoire of established management methods and standardized procedures for carrying out their tasks.

Management tools provide orientation and offer templates for managing frequently occurring tasks in a routinized and comprehensible manner. Such tools are widely used in business management and management consulting.

We will discuss which tools best assist in analyzing, planning, implementing and evaluating communications and shed light on the most frequently used management tools in corporate communication. We will specifically introduce those tools that we found have the highest satisfaction rates among communication leaders, and outline the success factors for creating a company-specific toolbox.
