Give Ownership to Stakeholders

To increase stakeholder acceptance of a project give them ownership.

Do this by letting them choose delivery dates so that they will then support those dates.

For example, ask the production manager to give you the date they will complete the fabrication of a piece of equipment. Then put that specific date in the schedule and note that it was specified by that person. By seeing the date that they chose in the schedule they are more likely to accept the delivery dates of the project.
