Overview

Many construction disputes and court cases can be avoided if a mutual stakeholder management approach is adopted by the parties. Dispute resolution tactics including legal proceedings are a reactive way of settling things; whereas stakeholder management is a proactive approach that prevents things going wrong in the first place.

Increased use of partnering and other relational forms of contracting have emphasised the need for project participants to work together and stakeholder management enables them to see the wider picture.

The book captures best practice in construction stakeholder management using international case studies. It demonstrates stakeholder mapping, presents the power/interest matrix and analyses a model for the early engagement of stakeholders.
