|In many quarters it is the lack of effective COMMUNICATION with the project STAKEHOLDERS that results in the failure of projects.
It is imperative that the Stakeholders within a project are identified as early as possible and a Communication Plan devised to keep them informed.
The Project Sponsor is a key Stakeholder but often this person has little or no knowledge of the project or project principles or their role and responsibilities.
|What or Who are the Project Stakeholders?
There are many definitions of who a Project Stakeholder might be.
One of the best is:
‘An individual, group, or organisation who may affect, be affected by, or perceive itself to be affected by a decision, activity, or outcome of a project’ (PMI – 2013 A guide to the project management Body of Knowledge – 5th edition)
