    Last Chance to Register: Friday, September 13, 2013 by 10 a.m.(MDT)

    You are cordially invited to attend Urban Encounters 2013 in Edmonton – IDA’s popular and informative table top trade show. 

    2 to 4:15 p.m.I Seminar: ENGAGING PROJECT TEAMS AND STAKEHOLDERS DURING THE PROJECT (2 IDCEC hours, AAA Structured Learning)
    Room 107

    The key to successful projects is not just the nuts and bolts of how to set up and run a project, but rather the engagement of the people involved in the project. Engaging project teams and stakeholders the right way and at the right time throughout the project can enhance project success. This session will address the below questions:

    1. How do you know who is a project stakeholder?
    2. At what point in the project should the team be involved?
    3. How do you keep the team involved?
    4. How do you maintain positive communication?
    5. What tool(s) could be used to keep the people and the project pointed in the same direction?

    If you have worked on projects that have resulted in a constant communication battle, or would like some tips on improving communication to enhance project success, this session is for you.

    Intended audience: This session is intended for all those involved with projects including project managers, project team members or those stuck with the project once it is completed!
