About the content

You are also a stakeholder! Don’t you believe me? But have you bought a phone, used a stove, worn pants or travelled in a car? See. In all these cases, you were also a stakeholder, because at the development, you – sometimes less so, sometimes more directly – were included.

What are stakeholders and why are they important? What is the best way to deal with them? What is a stakeholder analysis, how are stakeholders identified and how do you communicate with them?

The stakeholder is the central figure in ensuring successful projects. Stake refers to interest and holder refers to possession. In other words, a stakeholder is someone who has an interest in the success of the projects – their interests are on the line. In that sense stakeholders could also be thought of as interested parties in the project. The concept is not only restricted to people who use the system, such as clients, employees or managers but it could also include legal entities like institutions that also could have an interest in the system.
