Fractured relationships with stakeholders can create a fragmented project, but building positive relationships with the stakeholders of your project is a win-win. Positive relationships strengthen project processes by maintaining strong connections between all members of the team.
The ability to build long-term and trusting relationships with stakeholders is an essential element that defines the success of project managers and leaders. A wide range of stakeholders directly influences your business, whether you like it or not.
In the contemporary interconnected business world, companies that have managers who are able to foster a deep level of connection with their stakeholders have a significant competitive advantage.
