Stakeholder Management Workbook
Format: Report / Log
This document allows you to manage the stakeholders related to your project. Stakeholders are all persons or entities that are affected by the project in some way—either positively or negatively, either to a high extent or to a low extent. It is important to identify all stakeholders, and classify them according to their interest and power that they can have in the project. This classification allows you to decide how to engage each one of them, thereby increasing the probability of project success.
When your project involves only a few persons, you will probably not need any special tools or documents to manage their needs and expectations. But if you project involves many stakeholders—divided over different departments, companies or even countries—then it is highly recommended to use this document to manage them.
