4 Overall Findings in Stakeholder Management  Dialogue, communication and cooperation are as useful as technique, contracts etc.  Organise and tailor stakeholder management  Distinguish between stakeholder categories

5 7 Best Practices in Stakeholder Management (1) 1.Involve operators and industry  West Coast Main Line: involving railway operators to reach an open cross-industry approach to the project  Unterinntalbahn: coordination platforms for stakeholders at all levels 2.Facilitate liaison with local stakeholders and critics  Maaswerken: negotiate with other governments but stay within the borders of scope and budget: alternative solution for flood prevention

6 7 Best Practices in Stakeholder Management (2) 3.Avoid mixed messages  Lisboa – Porto High Speed Line: a dedicated group to deal with stakeholders  HSL-Zuid: from decentralised to centralised stakeholder management to avoid mixed messages 4.Reach consensus with stakeholders before tendering  Motorway E18: finish administrative process before tender phase to avoid facing complicated contractual consequences later

7 7 Best Practices in Stakeholder Management (3) 5.Enable the political branch to supervise the project  Gotthard Base Tunnel: organised political supervision provides continuity between changing governments and project authorities 6.Formalise responsibilities with the client and/or sponsors  Betuweroute: formalise formal and informal relations to speed up decision-making and to make dealing with scope changes easier

8 7 Best Practices in Stakeholder Management (4) 7.Brand the project  Øresund Crossing: all communication focussed on “a project to be proud of”  Gotthard Base Tunnel: stress the benefits for users (from revolutionary technological breakthrough to the “bridge” between different countries and modal short from road to rail

SIG
