Good project management means a detailed understanding of the role stakeholders play in the organizations they serve. Like most industries, the non-profit sector has it own set of rules that require careful attention when managing projects that drive its organizations. Further complicating matters, not for profit organizations are faced with an additional element outside of "the on time, within budget and within specification" mantra. Non profit organizations need to ensure that their projects adhere to their altruistic ideals while managing a mix of professional and often a group of volunteer stakeholders that are passionate to the cause they represent.
This podcast will examine how to manage stakeholders in non profit projects while serving the greater good.
Today, we sit down with industry insider, Michael Kamel, who has nearly a decade of experience in engineering and project management. Currently he is the President & Chairman of the Board of Directors of PMI Montreal, and also sits on the board of directors of the Management Consulting Division of the Academy of Management. Michael works as a Manager in Strategy & Operations for Deloitte Consulting in Montreal where his practice covers the domains of strategic planning, strategy deployment, innovation strategy and project management. Today he will be sharing his insights and war stories on managing projects and stakeholders in the non-profit sector.
