About the Event

This event is intended for those who work in the nonprofit sector.

Nonprofit organizations are unique in many ways, typically tasked with doing a lot of work with little or no resources. Nonprofits typically have deep ties to the communities in which they operate and have strong partnerships with government and other private agencies. Knowing which of these entities may impact your agency’s strategic initiatives is vital for nonprofits to thrive. Effective identification and communication with all the stakeholders is essential to ensure project success.

This workshop will explore two project management knowledge areas, communication and stakeholder management, that will help your agency gain clarity when managing projects and improve the probability of your project’s success. First, we will discuss stakeholder engagement and learn how to identify, analyze and manage stakeholders and then we will learn how to develop a communication plan based on your stakeholder analysis.
