Lessons Learned and Guidelines from 9 Programs and Projects
While Baker officially used the term ‘stakeholder’ in 1962, as project professionals we began to work to actively engage them and meet their expectations in the last 10-15 years. Now on programs and projects with greater complexity numerous internal and external stakeholders with varying degrees of interest and support are the norm and not the exception.
This presentation will focus on nine Federal Government or quasi-Government programs and projects and will talk about guidelines to best engage stakeholders with specific examples and lessons learned. It will describe project work for a dead stakeholder, a missing stakeholder, negative stakeholders, and positive stakeholders and how to achieve a balance in one’s time in working to help turn negative stakeholders into ones who are hopefully positive or neutral while maintaining the support of positive proponents.
