Topic: They said it! Success Mantras for Managing Stakeholders

Invited Guest Speaker: Dhananjay Gokhale

Topic Abstract:

If we twist the definition of the democracy in the context of the project management & leadership; it would appear as “…by the stakeholders, for the stakeholders, & of the stakeholders”. ‘Stakeholders’ is an extremely important aspect of any endeavor – small or large; simple or complex. The entire project gets developed on the foundation of stakeholders. This makes it imperative to a project manager / leader to manage the stakeholder community effectively.

The session will enable participants to:

  • Identify stakeholder management competencies developed by professionals by watching movie clips.
  • Relate the competencies expressed in the interview-clippings to day-to-day work
  • Enjoy the similes in required competent behavior across industries
  • Appreciate competencies developed
