STAKEHOLDER PERFORMANCE DOMAIN IN CONSTRUCTION

Projects are performed by people for people. The PMBOK reiterate that a stakeholder is ‘an individual, group or organisation that may affect, be affected by, or perceive itself to be affected by a decision, activity, or outcome of a project, program, or portfolio’ while stakeholder analysis is ‘a method of systematically gathering and analysing quantitative and qualitative information to determine whose interests should be taken into account throughout the project’ (Project Management Institute [PMI], 2021: 8). These definitions imply that the performance domain associated with stakeholders could result in either desired outcomes or undesired outcomes of projects. It is therefore vital to elicit responses to:

  1. How should productive working relationship with stakeholders throughout a project be promoted?
  2. How should project actors ensure that stakeholders who may oppose a project or its deliverables do not negatively influence the outcomes?
  3. What are the local strategies and actions required to promote productive involvement of stakeholders in projects?
  4. How should manager navigate effective stakeholder engagement on public projects?
