About the Program

Stakeholder Management is one of the most essential aspects of project management, regardless of the size or complexity of the project. However, stakeholder management is often overlooked, or it is relegated to an afterthought or secondary level of importance in the project management process.

This PMI session will offer participants a sobering perspective on the various reasons why stakeholder management is often not viewed with the necessary level of seriousness when project managers are initiating or planning a project. The presenter will provide practical guidance and will offer best practice recommendations regarding the key steps to appropriately identifying and managing project stakeholders and their expectations in order to achieve best project closure results.
