Project Management Communication and Stakeholder Management

As project and program managers are always judged at the end of things: phases, milestones, projects, etc., some of these are long and arduous. The ability to develop and manage productive relationships borders on art form and is a critical success factor for senior project/program managers. As project/program efforts approach the large and complex level, the level of stakeholder to stakeholder interaction increases. We must increase our level of professionalism and preparedness to match this challenge. This course will introduce the participant to tools, mechanics and interpersonal distinctions involved in successful and sustained communication and stakeholder management.
