Projects often run adrift despite our best efforts. One of the most commonly overlooked pitfalls is inadequate and ineffective stakeholder management. Gathering decades of research on communications and stakeholder relations, Mario suggests a paradigm shift in the way project managers view their stakeholders. Using the four “ships” (sponsorship, partnership, leadership and citizenship), the author charts a successful path for identifying and communicating with stakeholders that will positively impact the way you view stakeholders and how they influence your project. In this newly revised edition, Mario goes beyond theory to offer real tools and valuable resources focused on presenting what works when it comes to stakeholder management. His light, conversational style pulls together a wide range of perspectives on various topics. Also available in Spanish.
