As a project leader, your project's stakeholders are some of your greatest assets. However, those assets are only valuable if you collaborate with and involve them on a regular basis. Customers, colleagues, team members, management, the community at large—they all have something to offer, but to capitalize on these resources, you'll need effective interaction and continuous stakeholder engagement to uncover their true worth.

This self-paced, fully online course will help you successfully collaborate with your stakeholders to improve your chances for project success. You'll learn to identify, analyze, manage, and encourage your stakeholder groups to be an integral part of your project's outcomes.
