Stakeholder Management, Categorization and Communication: The Keys to Successful Projects
with Lee R. Lambert, PMP, CEO
8:30am - 4:30pm
8 PDUs (6 Leadership, 2 Technical)

With the new Knowledge Area "Project Stakeholder Management", you better get up to speed with this brand new class!

"I really enjoyed taking the Stakeholder Identification Course! The class was a great compliment to the PMBOK Project Stakeholder Management chapter and very revelant to the project that I am currently supporting. I really think all functional project team members would benefit from a course of this nature."


This course will prove to those attending why the PMBOK®, the world standard for project management, has added its first new Knowledge Area in many years (Project Stakeholder Management). This new Knowledge Area process documents how to analyze the current and desired levels of stakeholder engagement and highlights the fact that levels of stakeholder engagement may change according to the project situation and timeframe. In addition to the levels of stakeholder engagement, this new process also identifies the interrelations between stakeholders, including a process that ensures comprehensive identification and listing of new stakeholders, reassessment of current stakeholders and removal of stakeholders no longer involved in the project. The above information was taken from "Comparing PMBOK® Guide 4th Edition, PMBOK® Guide 5th Edition, and ISO21500" by STS Sauter Training & Simulation, S.A.

This workshop will hit on all of these new hot buttons! The project execution environment is a communications mine field and for projects to be successful all participants must learn to weave their way through the myriad challenges posed by dozens of project stakeholders. Stakeholders come in all shapes and sizes. Some are obvious and easily recognized, others are not! This course will teach project professionals how to identify all of the stakeholders, classify them according to the respective stakes and, most importantly, prepare a tailored project communication plan that provides timely and focused project information to the appropriate stakeholders. This new approach will lead to significant improvements in stakeholder communications and result in needed improvement in managing stakeholder expectations.

Who Should Attend?:

Anyone who approves projects, manages or leads projects or specific project tasks, anyone who will benefit or use the deliverables produced by projects or anyone who may have a personal/professional interest in a project outcome will realize significant benefit from this course. Executives to individual contributors, to support organization staff, to relevant functional organization personnel will greatly benefit from attendance.


Delicately blending lecture with hands-on workshop exercises, students will work in teams using a real life project to facilitate the demonstration/illustration of the methodologies, tools and techniques that have proven successful in developing and implementing a project communication network that addresses and informs ALL Stakeholders about their specific stakes.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of the course attendees will be able to:
• Identify specific project stakeholders based on “stake” and “power type”
• Classify project stakeholders into one of three specific categories
• Evaluate stakeholder expectations—determine “What’s in it for them?”
• Use a special Stakeholder Identification template to facilitate stakeholder analysis
• Develop a comprehensive stakeholder communication plan as an aid to managing stakeholder expectations
• Capitalize on stakeholder alignment and the synergy of integrated, cross-functional communications
• Overcome problems traditionally associated with failed Stakeholder communication/management
• Recognize the impact (positive and/or negative) stakeholders can have on the project – assess impact from many angles/perspectives
• Transition Lessons Learned through stakeholder communication to the benefit of future projects
