The stakeholder is anyone who can positively or negatively influence the project, including the customers or users, the project manager and team, the project’s sponsor, program and portfolio managers, the PMO functional managers within the organization, and external sellers that provide services or materials for the project.

The stakeholders may be involved in:

  • The creation of the project charter and the project scope statement

  • Approving project changes and being on the change control board

  • Identifying constraints

  • Identifying requirements

  • Risk management

  • The stakeholders may also become risk response owners.
