Who are the project stakeholders? How do we include them in the project?
The Plan Stakeholder Management Process is concerned with identifying the project stakeholders and analyzing their position and influence within the project
1. Identifying stakeholders
The term “stakeholder” refers to every person or group of persons that is directly or indirectly affiliated with the project or its objectives.
2. Analyzing stakeholders
Because of the different levels of impact stakeholders can have on a project, their positions and impact potential need to be identified
3. Verifying stakeholders
Subsequently, a separate verification should review and confirm the stakeholder analysis.
Type of Influence:
Use your stakeholder analysis, to analyze the project affiliates‘ respective attitudes to the project and to find the best participative way in which to build your relationships with them
Cultivate an open relationship with all stakeholders, by being honest about challenges and difficulties
Always remember that next to the direct stakeholders, there are also indirect stakeholders that have to be included in the communication. Corresponding communicational measures should be set out in the communication plan.
Create a glossary that includes all project specific terms and short cuts, in order to avoid misunderstandings.
Ask for feedback if you are unsure about whether your information was understood correctly. Include feedback from the stakeholders in your deliberations.
Keep notes even for informal conversations and meetings and pass them on when appropriate.
Information of stakeholders must always be handled strictly confidential.
Pay attention to tailor your communication to your vis-a-vis, in order to avoid spreading information unnecessarily.
