Project Management Essentials: Part 3 - Effective Communication & Stakeholder Management

Projects involve people. How you work with people can make or break your project!

Project management excellence goes beyond producing project charters, detailed schedules and status reports. Projects involve people. They include team members, clients, management, subordinates, peers, account managers, suppliers, contractors, regulators, and numerous other stakeholders. And with people, there are differing opinions, personality conflicts, office politics, and sometimes hidden agendas. Your people skills often make the difference between road blocks versus opportunities, and project success versus failure.

This 3-day workshop, part of the “Project Management Essentials” series, helps you improve project success through the proper understanding and managing of stakeholder requirements and the influence they have on the project.
