This book chapter provides insights from a case study project of Siemens Ltd, in which the authors experimented with project stakeholder analysis to explicitly consider Sustainable Development (SD) principles and integrate these into project management. The cases study project is an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of a Wind Park Farm in a rural area of Brazil. The case study was part of an explorative research study which aimed to rethink project management by considering SD principles (Gareis et al. 2013). In the notion of engaged scholarship (Van De Ven 2007) the research approach taken, was knowledge co-production of researchers and practitioners. The case study team consisted of two researchers and the representatives of the case study project, two PMO (Project Management Office) managers and other interested senior project managers of the company, see figure 1. Some of the practitioners engaged in the case study joint as authors of this chapter. After briefly providing a theoretical background on SD and project stakeholder management the case study reported in this chapter aims to - Provide an example how SD principles can be explicitly integrated in project stakeholder management. - Introduce a systemic constellation as a working form to deal with complexity. - Discuss strategies of considering relationships between project stakeholders which may led to an integrated project organization. - Reflects the case study results, opportunities and limits.
