What is Stakeholder Management?

Keeping stakeholders happy, engaged, and motivated is essential for building and sustaining strong relationships.
A unique set of abilities are needed to manage and interact with stakeholders. You must take a broad view to manage stakeholders effectively.

With the tools and techniques you’ll learn in this quick stakeholder management and communications course, you’ll be able to identify and analyse your stakeholders and determine their expectations, needs, and level of influence and interest.

We will teach you how to adapt your communication style, identify and resolve conflicts of interest, and increase your emotional intelligence quotient. Enhance your ability to influence others, win support and productive cooperation from essential stakeholders, and remove roadblocks to project success.

The stakeholder management course uses a hands-on, practical approach to help you learn how to identify and analyse stakeholders' various roles and interests within the context of a project. You will receive a toolkit that you can use right away to create a stakeholder management plan, keep engagement high, and settle disputes.
