About the Presentation

Stakeholders can be our biggest cheerleaders or our biggest detractors when managing projects. Often it feels like we have no ability to control which side of the equation they fall on. That is simply not true. Being a successful PM means successfully communicating and managing stakeholders. In this discussion we are going to talk about the 3 biggest keys in managing stakeholders. More importantly, we are going to talk about actions you can take immediately that will help you better manage your stakeholders and generate better results because of it.
