Rethink! Project Stakeholder Management broadens the view of project landscapes in
this thoroughly researched investigation
of project stakeholder theory, methods
Building on the current literature,
Martina Huemann, Pernille Eskerod
and Claudia Ringhofer portray the two
most common stakeholder management
approaches as existing on a continuum
between managing of stakeholders
and managing for stakeholders. ;eir
research study o;ers detailed insights
into how four contemporary projects,
each with complex stakeholder situations
and di;erent stakeholder management
styles, used focus groups and systemic
constellation methods to aid project
teams in clarifying roles, visualizing relationships and identifying stakeholders
and their needs.
To contribute to a more holistic project stakeholder management understanding, this book focuses on the following questions:
■ What can project stakeholder management learn
from stakeholder theory?
■ Which systemic methods are suitable for a holistic stakeholder analysis?
■ What are the potentials and limitations of a
more holistic project stakeholder management
in the context of sustainable development?
Stakeholder landscapes are becoming more and
more complex in contemporary project contexts.
;rough the research e;orts presented here, practitioners and teams will learn how to better position themselves with diverse stakeholder groups
to support the creation of shared project bene;ts.
