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 stakeholders and develop a communication plan and strategies to engage them.

Stakeholder views and expectations can change over the project lifecycle therefore the trainer will work with you to create a dynamic plan to preserve relationships during the life of a project. Learn how to overcome conflict with stakeholders and build strong relationships thus increasing confidence and the speed of problem solving and decision-making.

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.
