Training Courses: Stakeholder Management

Stakeholder Management

To be effective with your stakeholders, you must take the time to develop and build support and influence. Whether for a project or a significant change initiative, without the support of people, success is hard. Not to mention that dealing with people and people issues is one of the most time consuming activities. You need to know how to bridge the gap between development and operations and deliver more value faster to your customers.
