Every project has stakeholders. Whether you’re managing a cloud deployment or planning a spaghetti dinner, someone has a vested interest in the outcome of the project. They have something to gain or lose as a result of the project and can directly influence its results. An integral part of project management is getting to know your stakeholders and the roles they play.
Every stakeholder wants the project to succeed, and each one will have their own vision of success. As the project manager, your job is keeping those people in the loop and making sure their needs are met. If you do that job well, everyone will be happy.
At the Zumasys Project Management Office, we understand the importance of managing stakeholders all the way from the “wild idea” stage to project sign-off. We work with our customers to make sure everyone’s voice is heard, from the executive level to the user level and everywhere in between. This helps to ensure that requirements and expectations are discovered early and everyone is satisfied.
