One of the key project management areas on which project success depends is stakeholder satisfaction, achieved by meeting their needs and expectations as aligned with project objectives. A key to keeping stakeholders’ expectations aligned with project objectives and meeting those expectations is to keep stakeholders engaged in the project. Project managers have little, if any, control over the stakeholders. So, stakeholder management is all about stakeholders’ engagement.
