Stakeholder Analysis and Engagement



Stakeholder Analysis and Engagement


Stakeholder analysis is the activity of identifying those groups or individuals who may be affected by an initiative or who share a common business need and analyzing them to determine the impact for each stakeholder and an appropriate engagement or communication plan to ensure the project solution is delivered and accepted.

This stakeholder analysis training teaches students to consider all of the stakeholder characteristics before deciding on appropriate deliverables and producing an analysis work plan. Developing a stakeholder engagement and communication plan will prevent major problems by ensuring that all of the appropriate stakeholders are involved and the requirements will be analyzed and presented using the most effective communication approaches. During class students are presented the Stakeholder Analysis Worksheet and are given guidelines for their stakeholder analysis efforts.


  • Define the steps in Stakeholder Analysis
  • Identify all stakeholders impacted by a project
  • Assess concerns for each stakeholder
  • Develop a communication plan for each stakeholder based on their needs and unique characteristics
