Some of these people have the power toundermine your projects and your position. Othersmay be strong supporters of your work.• Stakeholder Management is the process by whichyou identify your key stakeholders and win theirsupport. Stakeholder Analysis is the first stage ofthis, where you identify and start to understand yourmost important stakeholders.• The first stage of this is brainstorm who yourstakeholders are. The next step is to prioritizethem by power and interest, and to plot this on aPower/Interest grid. The final stage is to get anunderstanding of what motivates your stakeholdersand how you need to win them six ‘M’ s’ of Planning– Men.– Materials.– Machines.– Methods.– Money and;– Ring• PROMOTES DELAY ANDINTERRUPTION• CANNOT PREDICT OR PLAN– LEADS TO• MAXIMUM PAYMENTS• MINIMUM EFFICIENCY• MORE CLAIMS• MORE definitions• The application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to projectactivities in order to meet or exceed stakeholders needs andexpectations from the project (Duncan, 1999).• Application of planning techniques and managerial controlmethods (Okoroh, 2000)• The defining, planning, scheduling and controlling of the tasks thatmust be completed to reach the project goal, and the allocation ofthe resources necessary to perform those tasks (Lowery).• Involves the overall planning, control and co-ordination of a projectfrom inception to completion aimed at meeting the client’srequirements and ensuring completion on time, within cost and tothe required quality standards (CIOB, 1990).WHAT IS PROJECT MANAGEMENT?

It is important to get timeestimates right for two main reasons:• Time estimates drive the setting of deadlines fordelivery of projects, and hence peoples’ assessmentsof your reliability• They often determine the pricing of contracts andhence their profitability.Usually people vastly underestimate the amount of timeneeded to implement projects.
