Project Stakeholder Management On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Stakeholders can make or break a project. Engage them and build their trust to achieve project success.

Course Description/Agenda

It is commonly said that up to 90% of a project manager's time is spent communicating. In this 3-day course, you will upgrade your communication skills to successfully resolve thorny issues that often derail projects. Discover new tools and resources to monitor and control stakeholder engagement. Plus, manage stakeholder expectations and deal with difficult personalities and conflicts of interest. 

You will be able to describe project benefits without sounding technical, so stakeholders buy in. Give relevant status updates to outside vendors and clients to meet their expectations. And, effectively manage remote teams involving stakeholders who are not co-located (i.e. remote location).

What You Will Learn

  • Identify high-priority stakeholders and their needs and interests
  • Build trust and positive relationships with external stakeholders, especially those who are not co-located (i.e. remote location)
  • Apply effective negotiation, persuasion, influence, and communication techniques to manage relationships with stakeholders
  • Use tools to help manage scope creep throughout the life of the project
