Topic: Why Stakeholders regularly Ignore your Project Reports and how to Fix that
Brief Synopsis of the presentation
The #1 way to improve the success probability of your project is to nail stakeholder buy-in - but how do you do that?
The #1 way to nail stakeholder buy-in is to give them uncomplicated visual project updates so they actually understand your project - but how do you do that?
Join Peter 'The Lazy Project Manager' Taylor to explore the world of project reporting, and communication, along with effective stakeholder engagement – it is all about making people actually care and understand about your projects
After all, 'reporting is not communicating...'
3 Learning Objectives:
- Know what are the common barriers to effective stakeholder communication?
