Stakeholder Engagement and Communications [podcast]

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others” – Anthony Robbins

So many projects and programmes snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by failing to communicate effectively or misjudging the mood of the stakeholder base.

In this podcast Rod Sowden talks about the approach to Stakeholder Management defined  in Managing Successful Programmes and gives an overview of the key areas to focus on and how the stakeholder management can be deployed effectively.

Stakeholders and Project success

FACT: PM is as much about people management as it is project management.

Communicating and managing stakeholders effectively in change delivery is absolutely paramount to project success. Stakeholders have the power to de-rail projects and ultimately determine whether the project is deemed a success or failure by the larger audiences.

At Aspire Europe we have an interactive learning master class which enables the user to enhance their stakeholder management knowledge and  their contribution to effective stakeholder management and communications in the workplace.
