A case study consisting of two projects has been undertaken to investigate how the problems of managing the concerns of stakeholders present themselves in an actual construction project. A method of stakeholder mapping, together with the power/interest matrix, has been used to identify stakeholders and their influence on the projects studied. Which problems arose, how were they resolved, and what were the consequences of the solution? The case study shows that an evaluation of stakeholder demands and
