Tools of the Trade Session Leader: Steve R. Sanders, PhD, PMP
President S2 Construction Management Consultants, LLC
Topic: Communication Management with Key Stakeholders
Stakeholder management, according to the PMBOK Guide®, Fifth Edition, “focuses on continuous communication with stakeholders to understand their needs and expectations, addressing issues as they occur, managing conflicting interests and fostering appropriate stakeholder engagement in project decisions and activities”. Sounds great, but how do I do that on my projects? I’m limited by time, access to key stakeholders, and tools to use.
The objectives of this Tools of the Trade are to:
· Present best practices about planning and managing stakeholder communication
· Provide specific tools to use to make the stakeholder communication process more efficient and effective
These tools apply to all types of projects (e.g., IT, new product development, and equipment design and installation). The participants will have the opportunity to apply the tools to one of their projects as the tools are discussed and will be given templates of the tools to take back for use in their organizations.
