Success in the delivery of any project, programme, or policy is dependent on the effective management of stakeholders. Without the support and buy-in from key contributors, projects face the risk of failure.

Dealing with a variety of stakeholders with different, and sometimes competing interests can be challenging. This course examines how to identify key stakeholders and help you to develop a more effective strategy to engage them.

Fostering stronger relationships with key stakeholders will help you achieve your desired outcome.

Attend this A Guide to Successful Stakeholder Management training course to perfect your stakeholder management skills. Take away tools to achieve stakeholder buy-in to support your organisation’s objectives. Learn how to identify and map key stakeholders, effectively manage conversations, and how to evaluate stakeholder relationships.
