Two-Day Workshop 

Presented by Dr. Tom Wielicki 

Brought to you by the Craig School of Business

Stakeholder Management and Communication Planning (Part I) – Thursday, May 7th

Stakeholder Management is one of the most underestimated knowledge areas of Project Management in spite of well-known fact, that mishandling project stakeholders is a frequent contributor to project failure. The first part of workshop will focus on fundamental concepts related to understanding stakeholders’ role in the project through discussion of stakeholder identification methods, classification, and stakeholder prioritizing.

Stakeholder Management and Communication Planning (Part II) – Friday, May 8th 

Execution of the strategy regarding Stakeholder Management is primarily implemented through well designed communication activities since key ele-ment of a good stakeholders’ management plan is “keeping them in the loop.” Participants will learn how to develop and execute Communication Plan for the project. A case driven discussion conducted in groups will concentrate on such issues as manag-ing stakeholders’ expectations, conflict resolution, and completion assurance and above all – documen-tation of “lessons learned”.

Receive pre-approved PDUs for PMI® certification or contact hours for those seeking PMI® credentials or certifications.
