First and foremost we have to establish good working relationship with ALL our stakeholders by engaging them throughout the project. Meeting the project objectives by having clear OVERALL understanding of the project scope time costs and functions.

Secondly work out every differences through common understanding, that is why partnership is important in project implementations. Every one of our stakeholders are responsible to make the project a success.

Thirdly celebrate every point of success (milestone achievements) with our Stakeholders to give recognition in working together. Dont forget them until the last day of the project presentation.

Lastly pray to ALLAH that everything will be made easy for us to manage HUMAN BEING as how we manage the project itself.

Perfect answer Sir..

I like to share ..... daripada bacaan saya. "7 Steps to manage Stakeholders expectations"

1. Establish an agreement.

It is difficult or impossible to manage stakeholder expectations if you do not have some agreement to begin with. You need to agree on what the expectations are. 

2. Manage change.

Once an agreement has been reached, changes should be managed through the change management process. This ensure that the stakeholder approves all changes and helps keep expectations in line.

3. Communicate proactively.

When the agreement has been reached, continue to communicate proactively through the status reporting process or as part of a broader Communication Management Plan – especially if there are any problems meeting the expectations. This helps the stakeholder keep up-to-date on progress, issues, risks, etc. The main motivation is to avoid surprises.

4. Periodically assess performance.

The project manager should be assessing expectations on an ongoing basis. If it looks unlikely that you will meet expectations, immediate steps should be taken to get back on track.

5. Deliver against the expectations.

Again, this may seem obvious. However, once an agreement has been put into place, you need to make sure that you deliver as expected. One of the weaknesses on the part of many people is that they do not fulfill their agreed-upon expectations, and they do not communicate with the stakeholder to inform them of the status and acknowledge the missed expectation.

6. Reset expectations if necessary.

If you determine that the original agreement cannot be satisfied, the agreement should be re-negotiated. This process includes gathering the facts surrounding the inability to meet the original agreement. In addition, alternative courses of action should be formulated to determine how to perform as closely to the original agreement as possible in a way that will satisfy both parties. Once a modified agreement has been reached, reset the expectations and begin the work necessary to meet the requirements of the new agreement.

7. Complete the agreement.

Review the completed work with the stakeholder to ensure that the terms of the agreement have been fully met. If not, negotiate what will be required to fulfill the agreement.
