    Chapter from the book: Project Management Institute Australia, . 2017. PMI Australia Conference 2017.


    In this paper, we develop a social network–based framework for the analysis of stakeholder engagement relationships. We demonstrate that senior stakeholders identified by traditional models such as the Salience Model are not necessarily “commanders,” as shown by the social network model, as far as engagement (operationalized as “problem solving”) is concerned. We discuss several implications of our model at the theoretical level for contribution to project management science and at the practical level for the application of the model.
