Stakeholder management is dead – Announcing community facilitation!

Stakeholder management passed away June 20, 2009 surrounded by his family. He died of top-down-command-and-control disease. He was the widow of certified nincompoops. Born in theory to social scientists, he leaves his beloved children Dullness and Cognitive Dissonance. He is also survived by his grandchildren Workshop-till-you-drop, Toolkit-from-here-to-Tokyo and Audit-the-hell-out-of-you. He leaves behind numerous devoted flipchart papers and Post-its. A private ecology service has been held.

Connections in lieu of flowers to Organizational Change Practitioners or any other community you are passionate about!  Stakeholder Management’s death leaves a void in all our lives. Although we shall gather together to remember our friend in the near future for now, we welcome Community Facilitation!

– date of birth – since the beginning of mankind
– time of birth – any time, any generation
– weight – immune to gravity
– length – a multiplication of connections
