The dynamics of our project environments require resilience, adaptability, and creativity. The soft skills we employ in order to nurture relationships and engage our stakeholders have become more than keys to success – they are now critical to survival.

The Project Economy is here and it requires a high-level of engagement from all stakeholders. As President Lincoln (and Peter Drucker) said: “The best way to predict the future is to create it”. A proactive approach to stakeholder engagement has become an essential practice whether you are employing agile, predictive or in-between.

The Engagement Matrix is a tool that will help you proactively manage stakeholder engagement. In this presentation, we will demonstrate categorization of stakeholders and apply the results to various stakeholder roles. We will show you the four major areas: Manage, Train, Motivate, and Nurture, and you will receive access to the entire matrix which is broken down into 16 mini-quadrants of advice and direction and then 64 micro-quadrants of specific actions.

The Engagement Matrix is not for sale – it will be yours to use. Stakeholder engagement, from the team to the sponsors, isn’t a passive activity and The Engagement Matrix provides guidance for continuous action. The cycle of stakeholder identification, analysis, and activity is an on-going process that begins before the project and continues indefinitely. The Engagement Matrix will encourage collaboration to become an integral part of your project life, boosting your results, improving the lives of those around you, and enabling your teams to enjoy greater and greater success!
