Stakeholder Analysis

Stakeholder analysis is a technique for determining the level of interest and power each stakeholder has in the project. Project success is directly related to meeting stakeholder needs. Understanding which stakeholder has the greatest level of interest and power in the project facilitates engaging stakeholders at appropriate levels and managing project communications.

· Describe each stakeholder’s potential impact on the project, based on power and interest. (3–4 paragraphs)

· Prepare a stakeholder power/interest grid for the project.

Stakeholder Engagement Strategies

A stakeholder engagement strategy is a planned approach to ensure that stakeholders are fully involved in project activities appropriate to the level of their interest and influence. Managing stakeholder engagement involves processes designed to meet stakeholder expectations through effective communications and timely issue and conflict resolution.

Apply strategies for effectively managing stakeholder engagement for the project.

· Explain how stakeholders will be engaged in the project on an ongoing basis. (3–4 paragraphs)

· Describe strategies for managing stakeholder expectations. (3–4 paragraphs)

Communications Methods and Technologies

Communications planning may present significant challenges, especially when the project team and stakeholders are global, virtual, multinational, and multicultural. Communications planning for a stakeholder community of this nature must account for the diversity of the participants and differentiate communications methods between internal and external constituents.

· Describe the approach that will be used to determine stakeholder communication needs for the project. (3–4 paragraphs)

· Describe the methods that will be used for ongoing communications with internal and external stakeholders. (3–4 paragraphs)
