Effective Management of Project Stakeholders

Overview

 

6 PDUs

A great deal is said about the need to manage the people associated with a project (Stakeholders), but little is ever provided by way of guidelines on how to do it. This course is full of helpful tools and techniques that guide you from the beginning of the project, when you identify the stakeholders, to a successful end. You will examine the process of identifying stakeholders and analyzing their diverse roles and investments in the project. You will also learn how to get the right people involved at the right time and prevent enthusiasm for the project from ebbing.

You will be introduced to strategies for ranking requirements to ensure that the most important requirements are considered when you make trade-off decisions. In addition, you will learn how to achieve better results through clear, open, honest communication that meets the needs of your stakeholders and minimizes misunderstandings. The techniques you will learn for managing your stakeholders and accommodating their styles, interests, and needs will increase project buy-in and enhance project success.

No prerequisites
