Influence Agenda: Aligning Stakeholders in Times of Change

The seminar is based on Dr. Mike Clayton’s book The Influence Agenda: A systematic approach to aligning Stakeholders in Times of Change focus on Political Acumen. Projects would be straightforward if it were not for the people. And, whenever you have two people in a room, you have politics. So, as project managers, we need to become adept at understanding the political environment of our projects, and at engaging positively with our stakeholders at a political as well as at a transactional level. This seminar will explore the issues and help you build your toolkit.


 During this seminar we will be discussing:

  • Understanding the Stakeholder Landscape
  • Mapping out Webs of Political Influence
  • Understanding Power Bases
  • Understanding which Battles to Fight
  • Crafting an Influential Message
  • Building a Communication Campaign
