Stakeholder Analysis: A Discussion and Exercise of the New PMBOK Knowledge Area

Facilitated by Clyde Raymer Jr.

Every project will have its challenges from Initiating to Closing. It is the nature of the profession that the, "best laid plans of  mice and Project Managers…” will find a way to turn into a curve ball. It is the responsibility of the PM to have established and nourished solid relationship with the Stakeholders as a Team. That relationship will provide the framework for a return to success.

Clyde’s experiences include work with Military, Public, Private and Non-Profit sector projects. This has provided a wide view of situations that have called for solutions not always in the “Box”. But all of the solutions have a common thread of working collaboratively with Stakeholders and knowing their needs beyond the current project.

Through thorough and regular face-to-face Stakeholder communications, a relationship can be established to return a project back to a successful course…and that relationship starts with a planned and executed Stakeholder analysis plan. Clyde will lead us in this interactive session covering the new Knowledge Area of Stakeholder Management introduced in the 5th Edition of the PMBOK.

About the Presenter

Clyde is employed by SAIC, Science Applications International Corporation out of San Diego, Ca. His current assignment is to provide project management methodologies to Oregon’s FirstNet in Oregon project office. He is embedded in the State of Oregon’s Major Project Branch organization in Salem. The goal of Firstnet in Oregon project is to facility bringing a coordinated nationwide Public Safety Broadband network to first responders in the field. This will provide a common collaboration point for first responders that does not share bandwidth with the public networks. Too often during an incident, the commercial cellular service provider’s networks will be overwhelmed by the public’s use. FirstNet will provide a broadband connection that is not in competition with the public network.

Past Projects include Alaska’s Iditarod Sled dog Race, Canada’s Yukon Quest Sled Dog race, Oregon’s own sled dog race “Eagle Cap Extreme” in eastern Oregon, DOD Missile Defense system (Star Wars), FAA’s ANICS communication project and State of Oregon’s State Radio Project.
