Managing Stakeholder Expectations

By    in others    December 5, 2014

There is a distinct need to manage stakeholder expectations in all projects as the expectations from the project varies from stakeholder to stakeholder. For example, a marketing head would want a solution that will help him to keep track of all the product changes while the sales manager would want a solution that will help him to keep track of the choices of his customers.  It is advisable that the project manager take care to address, identify and understand who the different stakeholders are, their expectations from the project and any vested interests, potential impact and influence they may have on the project outcome. Waiting till the Implementation phase to identify and understand this is too late for taking suitable actions.

The project manager will have to do a Stakeholder Analysis for making the Project Management Plan to identify the different needs, set priorities and see which requirements have to be fulfilled in the project for each stakeholder for the project to be considered a success by them.  Doing this helps the project manager to earn more support and cooperation and less opposition from the

for undertaking a stakeholder analysis We provide Generalise solution keeping all the departments in the CRM Make a list of all the project's stakeholders. For each stakeholder understand
  • the key requirements which must be met for them to be satisfied
  • chances of getting support for the project from the stakeholder
  • their likely change requirements
Analyze the interests of each stakeholder in the project and rate this on a scale. For example, this could be a scale of 1 to 4 e.g.
  • Vital
  • Significant
  • Some effect on time/cost/quality and
  • No effect
See what actions must be taken to meet the important objectives of the stakeholder and also look into what help can be obtained from different stakeholders to achieve project success. See what actions must be taken to incorporate the changes needed from the above steps and incorporate them in the project's WBS.

In, a software development methodology (also known as a system development methodology,software development life cycle, software development process, software process) is a division of work into distinct phases (or stages) containing activities with the intent of better planning and management. It is often considered a subset of the The methodology may include the pre-definition of specific  and artifacts that are created and completed by a project team to develop or maintain an application Software engineering is an engineering branch associated with development of software product using well-defined scientific principles, methods and procedures. The outcome of software engineering is an efficient and reliable software product. Software project management has wider scope than software engineering process as it involves communication, pre and post delivery support etc. This tutorial should provide you basic understanding of software product, software design and development process, software project management and design complexities etc. At the end of the tutorial you should be equipped with well understanding of software engineering concepts. Let us first understand what software engineering stands for. The term is made of two words, software and engineering. Software is more than just a program

A program is an executable code, which serves some computational purpose. Software is considered to be collection of executable programming code, associated libraries and documentations. Software, when made for a specific requirement is called software product. Engineering on the other hand, is all about developing products, using well-defined, scientific principles and methods.

Common methodologies include and . Some people consider a life-cycle "model" a more general term for a category of methodologies and a software development "process" a more specific term to refer to a specific process chosen by a specific organization. For example, there are many specific software development processes that fit the spiral life-cycle model.To introduce software process modelsTo describe three generic process models and when they may be usedTo describe outline process models for requirements engineering, software development, testing and evolutionTo explain the Rational Unified Process modelTo introduce CASE technology to support software process activities In my career I've come across two broad types of theory: physical theories and educational/management theories: Physical theories are either correct (under appropriate conditions) or incorrect, as judged by the physical world. Educational/management theories have the appearance of being like physical theories, but they lack rigorous testing. At best they give new ways of thinking about problems. Multiple theories are useful because one of them may speak to you in the right way. As an hobbyist student of software engineering there appear to be a lot of theories of software engineering (such agile

test driven design, patterns, extreme programming). Should I consider these theories to be physical-like or educational/management-like? Or have I mis-understood software engineering and find myself being in the position
