This chapter introduces a number of specific concepts that help better understand stakeholder engagement from an integrated project delivery (IPD) perspective and a growing interest in stakeholder influence and impact beyond the general management field to its application to project work. It provides insights into stakeholder engagement targeted at projects and more specifically how it may be applied in IPD contexts. The chapter discusses how digitisation has revolutionised how stakeholders can enhance collaboration between stakeholders to visualise a project output, and through that visualisation to be able to frame constraints and opportunities more effectively and to re-frame project objectives and requirements accordingly. It explains how stakeholder engagement was undertaken on several Finnish projects with critical evaluation of how that process was carried out and how it may have been improved when using a more integrated project delivery approach.
