A project manager managing a small project has a total of 12 active stakeholders. How many lines of communication are there in your project?
The formula for calculating lines of communication is as follows, where n represents the total number of stakeholders (you are already assumed to have been included in the number):
n (n – 1) ÷ 2
Plug in the numbers to get the following: 12(12 − 1) ÷ 2 = 66.
