ABSTRACT
The aim of this research is to make a business case for the inclusion of a stakeholder relationship management culture in government establishments. It explores the relationship between stakeholder relationship and project performance, underscoring the role project managers’ play as key stakeholders in integrating the goals of all stakeholders in the attainment of project objectives. A review of the literature shows that there is a consensus amongst researchers of Stakeholder theory, with respect to the significance of stakeholder relationship management as it affects project performance. Relevant evaluations of various studies were carried out, where findings were compared and contrasted with already established perspectives. A quantitative methodological approach was undertaken with an inclination towards the positivist philosophical orientation. A cross sectional survey design was adopted in the form of a structured questionnaire issued to a selection of 107 respondents across 4 cadres of staff in 3 randomly selected public institutions in the Port Harcourt metropolis. The findings reveal that there is a significant relationship between the dimensions of stakeholder relationship management  (stakeholder mapping and engagement) and the measures of project performance (cost, time, quality and stakeholder satisfaction), an absence of which can hamper the project outcome. Based on the findings, recommendations were made in the final chapter.
