Managing Stakeholder Expectations instructor led trainingworkshop / seminar : Stakeholders come in all shapes and sizes. While the expectations of some project stakeholders may be straightforward and closely aligned with project goals, other stakeholders may have expectations which are unknown, or not achievable given the purpose and scope of the project.

One of the most challenging aspects on many projects is the managing of stakeholder expectations. Learn to do it well, and your project will have a much easier time, and be much more likely to achieve success. Do it poorly, and before you know, you may bogged down in endless meetings and complaints.
