Stakeholder engagement for infrastructure projects webinar

Stakeholder engagement (not management) is one of the factors considered to be critical for project success, yet it is under-represented in the bodies of knowledge and other “best practice” standards and methodologies.

As one of the “soft skills” it is often left to be implemented at the discretion of the project manager and their team, and therefore is under-resourced.  It is often responsive, rather than pro-active.

Based upon current research and recent case studies, this webinar provides an overview of the International Association for Public Participation spectrum (IAP2) and discuss when each element of the spectrum could and should be applied.

This presentation delivered on Friday 27 March, covered of some of the key practices and techniques applied to the engagement of stakeholders and communities.
