Chris Smith replied to the topic How-to: Tips on Getting Buy-In from Project Stakeholders? in the forum Leadership, Management, Supervision 7 years, 4 months ago
We recently implemented a new web content management system within an enterprise that had 120 content editors (stakeholders). We knew that to be successful, we needed their buy-in, especially from the more vocal individuals. We created a “VIP” group for certain individuals to give them access to the system early, get their feedback, and hear their thoughts.
As a result, the stakeholders felt engaged and listened to. When the project rolled out, we had their buy-in, which made the entire process much easier.
