The Stakeholder Engagement Canvas
Kathy Berkidge

Stakeholder engagement is critical in agile projects. Agile project managers, business analysts, product owners, Scrum masters as well as agile teams must plan their approach to collaborate well with stakeholders and build productive working relationships. While there are many tools and techniques to perform stakeholder analysis, we need to analyse the mindset of our stakeholders – a deeper level of analysis - to understand how they might view various situations, and how we can best respond to them. We must also look within ourselves to understand how our words and actions may be perceived to identify ways to build rapport. This is where mindfulness is needed.

This workshop will explore the ‘Stakeholder Engagement Canvas’, a new tool that helps us perform a more thoughtful and insightful level of stakeholder analysis. It examines the stakeholder’s needs and attitudes to plan, analyse and monitor the engagement process, along with how we can be more mindful working with them to cultivate successful stakeholder engagement.

This session will NOT be recorded. Attendance is first come, first serve. 

This session will be delivered on Zoom.
