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