As stakeholder relationships and business in general have become increasingly central to the unfolding of stakeholder thinking, important new topics have begun to take centre stage in both the worlds of practitioners and academics. The role of the project manager becomes immeasurably more challenging, when stakeholders are no longer seen as simple objects of managerial action but rather as subjects with their own objectives and purposes.
This book will explain some of the complexities of project management and managerial relationships with stakeholders by discussing the practice of stakeholder engagement, dialog, measurement, management and the consequences of this practice for reporting and productivity, and performance within the project.
Managing Stakeholders in Software Development Projects will:
- Address new concerns in stakeholder management
- Discuss emerging stakeholder management concepts
- Provide insight's from a practioner's perspective
- Provide relevant case studies and readings
