EIANZ Webinar - Stakeholder Engagement
23 July 2020
EIANZ is pleased to invite you to an upcoming webinar on one of the most critical aspects of project management: stakeholder engagement. This webinar will examine some of the more advanced elements of project stakeholder engagement as a vehicle to achieve overall project success.
After defining project success criteria, the session will then explore the two dimensions of project success, using the “logical framework model”, which encompasses the complementary elements of: (a) project management success, and (b) product success. Practical project examples will be used to illustrate the criteria by which successful project outcomes will be valuated and determined, and how these can be supported by stakeholder engagement.
The focus will then shift to online engagement tools to facilitate meetings, which will increase the likelihood of achieving overall project success. This will include crafting stakeholder meetings to maximise engagement and collaboration, and providing guidance on planning and apportioning tasks to attendees to maximise contributions and develop team cohesion.
Join the NZ Chapter of EIANZ for their bi-annual symposium. This year we will be delivering this event online showcasing a series of speakers and an opportunity to interact in small workshops at the end of each day.
Speakers will address a range of topics on this issue. These presentations will cover:
