Course Overview

Why is stakeholder engagement important? Stakeholders influence the outcome and decisions on projects making them crucial for the success of the initiatives, projects, processes, and businesses in any organisation.

It, thus, becomes mandatory for business managers to fully understand the challenges and the potential concerns which the stakeholders and the sponsors might encounter during the life cycle of the project. Yet many are unfamiliar with effective techniques to manage this fraternity.

The existence of this knowledge gap compels the organisations to be reactive rather than proactive. Many opportunities also go unnoticed which have an impact on the morale of the corporate citizens and the company brand as well.
