Description: Are you looking for ways to improve your stakeholder engagement to build positive relationships and get more out of your projects? Stakeholder management is the key to delivering successful projects consistently. Many project teams either don't pay much attention to stakeholders or don't know how to keep the stakeholders engaged throughout the project, resulting in delays, cost overruns and unsatisfied stakeholders and customers.
According to a 2014 survey conducted by RefineM’s CEO, NK Shrivastava, almost 75% of surveyed project managers say their job has grown more difficult. This survey was conducted almost two years ago, and what we hear in our day-to-day operation is that these issues are still applicable for the year 2016. If this is the case, what is a project manager to do? Here at RefineM, we’ve come up with an immediately applicable strategy for you to do more with less and deliver successful projects.
Engaged stakeholders are powerful allies on your project, offering support and insights to help you and your team succeed. Simply listing stakeholders in a stakeholder register is not enough to drive stakeholder engagement. Stakeholders who are not engaged cannot fully support your project and may become barriers to success.
