May 2021, Chapter Meeting
Managing Difficult Stakeholders
Managing the many daily leadership activities and encounters with a variety of stakeholders to complete project objectives and meet client expectations is a challenge regardless of project size and complexity. Dealing with changing requirements, and in many cases, seemingly unreasonable demands of the client or other stakeholders, often tests the ability of the project manager and project team to remain focused on the project deliverables. Project managers and teams must develop skills and techniques that will assist them in maintaining an effective working relationship with their clients and recognize behavior or situations that may lead to potential conflict, team dissatisfaction, or strained working relationships. This presentation focuses on the importance of establishing a collaborative project environment and how to deal with stakeholders who may create difficult working environments.
