Stakeholder Analysis Tool

What is Stakeholder Analysis?

The Stakeholder Analysis Tool allows the Project Manager to periodically assess each Project Stakeholder to ensure that the correct level of engagement is present and to plan actions to rectify any anomalies.

The Tool is available to any Stakeholders marked as a Project Manager and can be accessed by clicking the Stakeholder Analysis Tools button on the Main Menu and selecting the Stakeholder Analysis option in the context menu that opens.

Stakeholder Analysis Format

The Stakeholder Analysis Tool displays a list of the current Project's Stakeholders, each Stakeholder will include an additional 5 properties so an Analysis of the Stakeholder's performance can be recorded.

Clicking on the Edit button will display a child window so the Analysis for the selected Stakeholder can be edited.

Once all necessary changes have been made the Analysis can be saved by clicking the Save button at the bottom of the child window. If any validation errors are encountered they will display at the bottom of the child window and must be rectified before the Analysis can be successfully saved.

Upon successful completion of the editing process the child window will close and a success message will display at the bottom of the application.

If the Cancel button is clicked, the child window will close, any changes will be cancelled and nothing will be saved.
