An organization is a group of related human beings who are working to achieve a common goal.
We have a small team of human beings who are working on a project to build a new bridge between a bridge project and a concrete bridge project. If we were to build bridges we would have to figure out how to do it ourselves. We would have to decide how to handle the project as it relates to our own life. We would have to decide how to make it easier for our own projects to succeed.
At this point, we’ve made it to the point where we need to decide how to handle our internal stakeholders. These are the human persons who are involved in the process of building a bridge. They are the people who are involved in building the bridge. If they are willing to work with us, they are an asset. If they are unwilling to work with us, they are a liability.
What you need to do to manage internal stakeholders is to know how they are going to work within the group. If they are only interested in the money, they will leave. If they are only interested in getting the project done, they will leave. If they are only interested in getting the project done, they will be the ones who need to be managed.
As an organization, your employees and vendors are your most valuable assets. They are the folks who are going to keep you afloat and your company functioning. The people who are going to help build the bridge are your internal stakeholders. If you want to save your company, you need to know who your internal stakeholders are. If you don’t know, you may be in for a long, difficult struggle to survive.
The primary purpose of the organization is to keep you running out of money. It may be that people who aren’t interested in the project are not looking for it. The main problem with the organization is that it has a bad reputation and is so weak that it doesn’t have an effective way to fight these weak people. This is a good thing because nobody has an income to spend on the project.
You may be able to stay up for two weeks, but you have to stay up all night to get a solid working night. You probably need to buy a new phone, but if you have no phone, you might not be able to get a new one.
A good project manager is one who keeps a good reputation with the stakeholders. They are in the right place at the right time and if they see the project is coming to a rough area, they will either make a change or find a workaround. It is not a given that the stakeholders will be on board with the project. But they can be counted on to be there when it comes to getting the project done.
The stakeholders are the people who care about the project and want to be there on the day it gets done. So when a project gets canceled or is delayed, it’s usually because the project managers are not there to help them. They’re busy with their own projects. They might get on board with the project, but it’s a lot harder for them to push ahead than to wait for someone else to do it.
