Hire Stakeholder Managers
Stakeholders are individuals or groups with an interest in the project, program or portfolio because they are involved in the work or affected by the outcomes.
Most projects, programs and portfolios will have a variety of stakeholders with different yet competing interests. These individuals and groups can have significant influence over the eventual success or failure of the work. A collaborative effort of people is required to complete a project no matter how big or small a project is. It requires support, investment and resources from all the stakeholders.
What Is Stakeholder Management?
Stakeholder management is the process of engaging with people in the project, and maintaining good relationships with them. You'll likely be working with people in many different roles, with varying levels of influence over your project. Communicating with each one in the right way can play a vital part in keeping them "on board". Good stakeholder management will clear the path of potential obstructions, support swift progress and ultimately improve quality of results. It’s not simply a case of keeping stakeholders happy – it’s also about using their time, expertise and influences to help achieve your goals. In order to effectively manage your stakeholders, you need to have a good stakeholder management strategy. The stakeholder management strategy identifies and documents the approach to take, in order to increase support and decrease negative impacts of stakeholders throughout the life of the project. At Guru, you can find many experienced freelance stakeholder management services.
