The first 15 minutes will be focused on Chapter information / upcoming events, followed by our learning topic:

Project Success Through Stakeholder Management 

Sometimes great results are not celebrated by all because the process excluded or ignored those that hold the stake. Stakeholders need to know that their voices have been heard and that there will be no surprises.

“A healthy organization acts on the interests of its stakeholders and customers”.  Project Managers are an essential bridge between the project sponsor and multiple stakeholders. They ensure that the project is executed in the best possible manner so that customer delight is maintained while business interests are fully preserved. 

Stakeholder management plays a crucial role in project management and organizational success. It involves identifying, understanding, and engaging with individuals or groups who have a vested interest or are impacted by a project. This practice is essential because stakeholders can significantly influence the project's outcome. 

Stakeholder management is important to ensure alignment and support. By actively involving stakeholders and considering their needs, expectations, and perspectives, project managers can gain their buy-in and commitment to the project's success. This alignment leads to smoother project execution and reduced conflicts. 

“Sometimes great results are not celebrated by all because the process excluded or ignored those that hold the stake. Stakeholders need to know that their voices have been heard and that there will be no surprises”.
