For example, key stakeholders should be invited to actively participate in a kick-off meeting rather than merely attending it. The project manager should emphasize that a dialogue is expected at the meeting, including texts or whatever means of communication the stakeholders prefer. It is also helpful for the project manager to meet with important stakeholders before the kick-off meeting. The project schedule should include activities and deliverables related to stakeholder engagement. Surveys, reviews, demonstrations, sign-offs, and other items require stakeholder engagement. Planning stakeholder management involves determining strategies to effectively engage stakeholders in project decisions and activities based on their needs, interests, and potential impact. Outputs of this process are a stakeholder management plan and project documents updates. 3. Managing stakeholder engagement involves communicating and working with project stakeholders to satisfy their needs and expectations, resolving issues, and fostering engagement in project decisions and activities. The outputs of this process are issue logs, change requests, project management plan updates, project documents updates, and organizational process assets updates.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
