Training Collaboration in maritime projects (stakeholder management I)

Training 3 July 2023

The success of a project depends heavily on the commitment and involvement of all participating parties. Especially when it comes to complex projects, it is important to carefully coordinate all activities; a chain is as strong as its weakest link. Sign up

Stakeholder management focuses on the skills, methods and techniques needed to efficiently direct the progress of work. Around this theme, NMT offers 2 in-depth modules*:

=> Stakeholder Management I - Collaboration in Maritime Projects=> Stakeholder Management II - Negotiation Skills in Maritime Projects.

The modules are intended for project leaders, clients and suppliers, who are involved in large-scale projects and who know that the success of such projects lies in the quality of cooperation with all stakeholders. The modules are also suitable for all those who in practice too
often suffer from abusive tactics, cumbersome procedures and an insular culture.

* Each module offers a completed program and can be followed separately.

Collaboration is a necessary condition for success.
This sounds logical, but the reality is stubborn. Collaboration is promised faster than put into practice. This in-depth module answers the question of how to get all parties involved on the same page.

On the program:

  • Operational Stakeholder Management:adapting to differences in priority, planning & perspective
  • Organizational Stakeholder Management: effective and efficient consultation
  • Strategic Stakeholder Management: organizing cooperation and dealing with resistance

With specific attention to the HOW & WHAT of :

  • Crucial Conversations in a project
  • One-line meetings & face-2-face consultations

  • tips, tools and techniques to productively exchange information & operate decisively.
