In Scope: Managing Projects at UW–Madison
Whose Project is It Anyway? Successfully Collaborating with Project Stakeholders
A successful project takes a village. That’s because all projects require the support, engagement, and alignment of many individuals who care about the outcomes, impacts, or usefulness of the work taking place. Effective collaboration with your project community (from sponsors to end users) is essential for identifying and reaching shared goals. This session will focus on the range of project participants (also known as stakeholders) who are essential to project success, how to work effectively with them throughout the project (hint: it starts with listening), and communication strategies and tools that can help ensure a successful collaboration.
