What are the best methods for updating the stakeholder register on a community project
Network:125



Are there any specific methods for updating the stakeholder register? Who suggests changes to the stakeholder register and who authorizes the changes and who actions them?

The register is an output of stakeholder management which is the responsibility of the PM so typically the PM would be the owner of the register. All aspects of the stakeholder register are the responsibility of the PM. Obviously depending on the project type the PM might rely on input from other team members such as the business analyst. There is an overlap between the PM and BA when it comes to stakeholder analysis.

Thank you Anton for the valuable information.

Dear Clayton
I absolutely agree with Anton wrote
Throughout the project it is important to:
- Review and possibly update the stakeholder register
- undertake stakeholder analysis

Clayton -

To add to Anton's feedback, the stakeholder register is just one of the many information repositories which a PM will keep current on a regular basis based on feedback received from multiple sources including their own observations, team discussions, issues emerging and so on.

I have yet to see a formal authorization process for updates to this information - adding that sort of governance is likely to discourage teams from keeping it current.

Thank you Kiron for the addition. I would be grateful to know more about the authorisation process.

Sorry if I wasn't clear but I've never encountered an authorization process for updates to the stakeholder register with any of the projects or portfolios I've led.

Thank you Kiron. I understand, I thought there are emerging trends in stakeholder analysis that 'we' may learn from 'Gurus'. This discussion has helped me a lot. Thank you once again!
