Team Assignment #2 Stakeholder Needs Analysis (Week 2)


Stakeholders are people who are impacted by what your project are attempting to do or who can contribute to the success of your project. Typically, when casting the net on stakeholders it is better to start with a wider pool, then narrow it with guidance from your project sponsor and project team.

Each stakeholder has different expectations and anticipated benefits from a project. It is important that the Project Manager (PM) determine each stakeholder’s business requirements. Once the business requirements are determined for each stakeholder, the PM must assess which business requirements provide the most value to the project overall. At this point, some requirements will be deemed higher priority than others and some may even be dropped from the project.

Outcomes Met With This Assignment:

  • contribute to a team activity to accomplish the goals of a project, recognizing the unique strengths and talents of individual team members
