book review: De project(ver)leider / SPOMP

 

projectverleiderspompJust read the “De project(ver)leider. Hoe je tijdens je project draagvlak creëert en met stakeholders verandering succesvol implementeert” from Leon Hielkema and Ankie Swakhoven. It’s based on the American version “Strategic project management SPOMP. Five powerful strategies to seduce and influence stakeholders” from Leon Hielkema.

The most important success factors of project success are related to support from clients, internal users.

In this book you get five strategies that are very powerful in creating commitment for your project. If you combine these five strategies you have the possibility to ‘seduce’ your stakeholders into your change and to support you to be successful in achieving the project objectives.

SPOMP:
S: Select your stakeholders
P: Plan to communicate
O: Organize influence
M: Market your change initiative
P: Prove potential success

The book is divided in eight chapters. The key parts of the book are the five chapters describing the five strategies and the other smaller chapters are focussing on the benefits of SPOMP and making a career. Every chapter contains several examples.

I summarized the five strategies in a handy one-pager.

Conclusion. Stakeholder management is explained in several methods like PMBoK, PRINCE2, MSP etc., but with this, easy to read book you can find a lot of pragmatic advice to bring stakeholder management into practice. It complements the method you are using! The book is definitely worthwhile buying.

  1. Dank voor de tip, Ik heb het zonet besteld. Gezien de fase van mijn huidige project en de overwegend positieve reacties kan ik het wel gebruiken denk ik.

    • Beste Marien, leuk om te lezen dat Henny’s blog je ertoe heeft bewogen om het boek te bestellen. Mocht je verder van gedachten willen wisselen over het boek, dan verneem ik dat graag van je. Fijne groet, Ankie Swakhoven
