PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition: 26 - Stakeholder Identification and Planning
Though projects are temporary endeavors undertaken to create a unique product, service, or result, the undertaking of a project affects many things. The results of the project are to make a change; that’s the objective of the project. Many people, groups, and entities hold some sort of stake in that change. Those that hold stake in a project and the project’s outcome are deemed “project stakeholders” and must be managed within the project management of a project. As a result, there is a knowledge area within project management dedicated to stakeholder management. Two of the processes contained within this knowledge area are “identify stakeholders” and “plan stakeholder management.” Learn the key tools, techniques, and inputs included in these processes to successfully manage a project’s stakeholders.
