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.

About the PM Industry Insights

PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc. 

Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
