In the workplace, you may be asked to present a poster to your peers. This way of presenting information can also allow for valuable networking opportunities with other stakeholders involved in a project. Poster presentations can give an opportunity for you to showcase work at business conferences and meetings. Your task is to create a poster that examines stakeholder tensions and priorities in public–private partnership (PPP). You will need to examine and identify the role of various stakeholders in your chosen PPP, and explore the relationship between key internal and external stakeholders. You should investigate actual or potential stakeholder tensions that can arise from PPPs, and explore the specific skill-sets required for managers in this setting.
