Many projects fail because stakeholders’ expectations and interests are not sufficiently steered and managed. This research analyzes stakeholder management from two perspectives: In a “management of stakeholders” approach, a project needs stakeholder contributions to fulfill its purpose. In contrast, the “management for stakeholders” approach is based on the understanding that all stakeholders are valuable regardless of their help or harm potential. Research results show that a combination of both approaches ensures greater flexibility regarding project stakeholder management.

In fact, many have no benefits management plan at all and are missing an opportunity to understand what would help them increase their rate of project and overall strategic success.
Do you have cross-functional teams who can get to "done" for features? Too many organizations still organize by function or component. That makes it difficult for agile projects to succeed or an agile transition to stick. As an agile project manager, you can use the collaboration assumed by agile to help teams succeed.

She'll also help you understand some of the practices that don't help, such as multitasking and distributed teams.
