Further information

Projects are challenging their managers, or better leaders in this respect, for managing stakeholders and building the case, in advance and throughout. Not addressing these challenges may result in project creep, incoherent approaches towards stakeholders, users and project teams, and ultimately reduce the capability to deliver the project in a controlled way. It is important that project managers lead stakeholder management, the scope of the project and perhaps act in a visionary manner.
