Stakeholder Theory

Australian expert discusses theoretical basis for stakeholder management in latest article, now in PM World Library

16 February 2015 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Dr. Lynda Bourne, Managing Director of Stakeholder Management Pty Ltd in Melbourne, has authored another article about stakeholders entitled “Stakeholder Theory”. Her newest article in a series on the general theme of program/project stakeholder engagement has been published in the PM World Journal and added to the PM World Library.

According to Dr. Bourne: “‘Stakeholder theory’ is a specific approach to recognising and dealing with stakeholders, based on the concept of stakeholder developed by Ed Freeman in his books Strategic Management: a Stakeholder Approach (1984), and Stakeholder Theory: The State of the Art (2010). These ideas are central to the ESEI™ approach to stakeholder engagement… The way in which organisations approach stakeholder engagement, the tools and techniques used to engage stakeholders and, at a philosophical level, the purpose of the organisation are built on which view of stakeholders is accepted by the organisation’s governing body.”
