[Virtual Skills Workshop] | Project Stakeholders: Dealing with Sleeping Giants to Saboteurs


All projects have their promoters and their detractors, people that can either make or break your project or your team.  This presentation will give you practical advice on who you need to focus on, show you how to classify where each person sits on the “Interest, Attitude, and Power” axis of your stakeholder chart and how to improve the attitude and interest of the power players in your world.
This workshop will incorporate exercises and situational case studies to emphasize key points and to help you achieve the best win-win outcome for you, your team and your project.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • What is the Stakeholder Identification chart and how it will help you
  • Using personality profiling to help you understand what makes people “tick” and where to place them on the chart
  • Techniques and tools to help move people from disinterested to involved and having a negative attitude to a champion
  • The key tactics of “Include, Influence, Ignore, Isolate”
  • Advanced negotiation techniques
