The Anti-Sponsor, and other Animals Difficult Stakeholders
Jake is a survivor of a hundred or so IT and Business projects and wants to share some things with the group!
Based loosely on his upcoming book, A Practical Guide to Dealing with Difficult Stakeholders, he will introduce some of the characters that populate real organisations including the Anti-Sponsor, the Maliciously Compliant Gatekeeper and the Mutinous Team.
His assertion is that to be an effective Project Manager you really need to understand social psychology before worrying about a project management methodology!
