Effective Stakeholder Facilitation is a one-day training session designed to provide project management practitioners with better ways to successfully identify, analyze, prioritize, and facilitate different stakeholder needs throughout the life cycle of the project.  Participants will explore and apply useful processes, tools, and techniques that will help enable smoother project delivery while minimizing stakeholder obstacles.
