Project stakeholders the power factor

Project Stakeholders: The Power Factor

Power in the context of project management may be broadly defined as the degree to which project stakeholders can excercize authority, influence and /or coercion with a consequent (positive, negative) impact on a project‘s (managerial, technical) pro-cesses and work activities, and its deliverables.

A project‘s cost, time, quality, risk and other para-meters can be affected, sometimes profoundly, by the application of stakeholder power.


Project stakeholders the power factor1

Project Stakeholders: The Power Factor

The power of some stakeholders may be transitory (i.e., it applies only at a certain point in time in the project life-cycle or over a short period of time in one or more project phases), while the power of other stakeholders may be non-transitory (i.e., it may apply over one or more phases of a project or even extend over the entire project life-cycle).

The intensity of stakeholder power may change (increase, decrease) over the project life-cycle.


Project stakeholders the power factor2

Project Stakeholders: The Power Factor

Some stakeholders may have a narrow power focus which is confined to one or a few specialized project areas and activities (such as, an external quality consultant who advises the project team on quality issues), others may have a very broad power focus which can determine the course of the whole project (such as, the project steering committee or senior management which can authorize the premature termination of the project under certain conditions).


Project stakeholders the power factor3

Project Stakeholders: The Power Factor

On a project, powerful „supportive“ stakeholders may intervene in it positively as facilitators by providing resources, support and encouragement to the project while powerful „adversarial“ stake-holders‘ may intervene in it negatively as obstructers causing an increase in the cost of the project, schedule slippage, undesired changes in the project scope or (in the very worst case) its eventual abandonment or premature termination.

P

  • Authority to compel reluctant stakeholders to involuntarily pur-sue certain courses of action or to compel them to do likewise by resorting to illicit means such as violence and intimidation.

  • Control over incentives, rewards and punishments (monetary and non-monetary, hiring and firing, promotion, suspension and tran-sfer of project staff etc).


Power in project stakeholder networks

Power in Project Stakeholder Networks

Med-

Med+

Managing stakeholder relationships and networks can be an especially complex and challenging task for the project manager and team.

Even identifying and evaluating relation-ships between stakeholders can be very difficult, especially when there is a large and heterogenous (external) stakeholder community. Considerable skill, experience and resources may be needed to perform a satisfactory analysis.

Some project stakeholders may appear relatively “powerless” and, hence, “un-important” but in fact they may be able to influence powerful stakeholders for or against the project.

Stakeholder attribute interests

I

Stakeholder Attribute: Interests

  • Stakeholders have by definition some “interest” in a project.

  • There are many possible interests, for e.g., economic, financial, social and ecological.

  • The intensity of interest will vary for different stakeholders as they are affected by the project diffe-rently. Interests can change over time.

Stakeholder attribute concerns

Stakeholder Attribute: Concerns

C

  • A concern is a feeling or emotion which a stakeholder has towards an issue (economic, financial, eco-logical, and so forth) associated with a project.

  • A stakeholder may have several concerns of varying priority which influence his/her/its attitude and behavior towards the project. Concerns are not static – they may change over time.


Abraham maslow s pyramid of needs

Abraham Maslow’s Pyramid of Needs

Abraham Maslow (1908-70) was an American psychologist and Professor at Brandeis University. His pyramid of needs was first proposed in his paper A Theory of Human Motivation dating from 1943 and subsequently modified.

Class Discussion

?

As part of an acquisition project, a large IT software developer will be taking over one its smaller com-petitors.

Identify as many concerns as you can which an em-ployee in the smaller orga-nization may have in con-nection with this project.


The complexity and multifacetedness of project stakeholder concerns acquisition project

The Complexity and Multifacetedness of Project Stakeholder Concerns (Acquisition Project)

?

  • A multitude of questions about the pro-posed corporate acquisition project would probably be floating in the mind of the affected employee of the to-be-acquired firm. These evolve against the backdrop of his individual concerns which are derived from his needs, desires, ambitions, hopes and fears.

  • If the employee feels he will benefit over-all significantly, then he is more likely to support the project. An effective informa-tion strategy of the project planners /im- plementers would focus on this.

Stakeholder attribute attitude

Stakeholder Attribute: Attitude

A

  • Attitude is the feeling of like, dis-like or indifference stakeholders exhibit towards a project or parts thereof (for e.g. other project stakeholders, project events).

  • Attitudes are determined by many factors and can change over time. Good stakeholder engage-ment strategies seek to influence attitudes in favor of the project.

Stakeholder perceptions of projects

Stakeholder Perceptions Of Projects

The intensity of stakeholder supportiveness, indif-ference or adversity towards a project is determined primarily by the nature of the project and the per-ceptions which the stakeholders develop about it based on the information they have and, possibly their previous experience with similar projects

A project to develop a Walt Disney Theme Park near a township would probably generate more support among stakeholders than a project for construction of a nuclear power station because of the stigma which is attached to the nuclear power industry.


Stakeholder perceptions of projects the concept of rational behavior

Stakeholder Perceptions of Projects: The Concept of Rational Behavior

Project stakeholders who „behave rationally“ will try to maximize their „quality of life“

In evaluating a project, stakeholders will carefully consider its respective pros and cons. To do this they must have access to all the requisite information they require in order to carefully analyze the project‘s potential impact on them over time, which includes the period of time both before as well as after the project‘s completion.

Is the stakeholder’s perceived gain from the project greater than (>), equal (=) to or less than (<) its perceived loss from the project?


Stakeholder perceptions of projects the quality of life dimension

Stakeholder Perceptions of Projects: The „Quality of Life“ Dimension

Project Gain > Project Loss

When the Perceived Gain from the Pro-ject [i.e. Improvement in the Stakehol-der‘s Quality of Life] >the Perceived Lossfrom the Project [i.e. Reduction in the Stakeholder‘s Quality of Life]:

 Stakeholders will Support the Project!

 Stakeholders will be Indifferent!

 Stakeholders will Oppose the Project!
