Going 'Virtual' with Stakeholders
Increasingly getting work done or projects delivered requires a mix of stakeholder inputs, people in different locations, continents, organisations and priorities.
No longer do we always sit at the one table in the same room, building or company as work has becomes less centralised, location fixed, activities are being outsourced and people are managed in matrix organisations.
The use of technology through conference calls, web meetings and social networking is changing ways of working for stakeholder analysis and management.
Meantime the work needs to get done. Management expect targets, deadlines and delivery to be met and stakeholders to have been managed effectively.
Have you any thoughts or ideas on meeting this challenge? How can we ensure effective stakeholder analysis when work is increasingly virtualised?
