Managing Stakeholders: the Art of Managing Up, Down, and Across

Published on

They've told you what they want delivered. They've given you a budget and sent you off to do your work. How do you make sure that what you deliver meets their expectations? Or, how do you convince them that what they want is wrong and that you really should be delivering something else? Our expert panelists will discuss how to collaborate with your stakeholders to define your deliverables as well as strategies to consider when stakeholders participate too little (or too much!). We’ll also discuss the Product Backlog in Scrum as an artifact that can help keep stakeholders in the loop and allows for changing requirements as a project progresses.
