Description

This course is designed to help project managers understand and resolve issues that can emerge from interactions among project stakeholders.

The course includes a brief tutorial to help students understand familiar strategies for managing stakeholder expectations, as well as ten concise case studies that explore common stakeholder issues. The case studies are designed to simulate the conversations and interactions that occur among project stakeholders, to show learners how to dissect causal elements from these types of conversations—just as they will have to do on their own projects—and to help them prepare appropriate responses. As students work through the case studies, they'll learn effective strategies to resolve stakeholder problems and gain the proficiency necessary to manage interactions and keep their projects on track.
