Stakeholders are individuals or groups who have an interest or influence in a project or organization.

What this document covers:
Identify Stakeholders: Create a comprehensive list of all potential stakeholders. This includes internal teams, external clients, customers, regulatory bodies, and any other parties impacted by the project.

Prioritize Engagement: Not all stakeholders are equally important. Determine the level of influence and impact each stakeholder holds. Prioritize engagement efforts based on their significance to the project's success.

Understand Needs and Expectations: Engage with stakeholders to understand their needs, expectations, and concerns. This insight will guide your decision-making process and help tailor your approach.

Open Communication Channels: Establish clear and open communication channels. Regularly update stakeholders on project progress, challenges, and successes. Ensure transparency and avoid surprises.
