Identifying stakeholder groups

In order to make well-informed decisions during the planning process, it's important to gain a deeper understanding of all of your stakeholder groups.

1. Why it is important to identify the groups involved

This unit discusses the need to take account of the groups which are involved in any way in your measures. This means that they either:

  • are somehow affected,
  • have a personal interest,
  • or can influence the process.

The aim of this unit is to help you to identify those groups and to adjust your project planning and maintenance based on their needs and preferences.

Once you have this valuable knowledge and insight into the relevant stakeholders, you will be able to make well-informed decisions during the planning process. This will help you to minimise costs and ensure the success of your project.
