Managing Stakeholder Expectations

When stakeholder expectations are actively managed, projects are more likely to succeed.

One of the most challenging aspects on many projects is managing stakeholder expectations. Do it poorly and you may be bogged down in endless meetings and complaints. Learn to do it well, and not only will your work be less stressful, but you will also be more likely to achieve project success.
