Introduction to the course
A stakeholder is a person, group or organization that has an interest in an organization, because they are affected by its operations or can affect Its operations. Stakeholders have an impact on every organization, public or private sector – some are internal, others are external, but the higher priority stakeholders must be engaged, their expectations understood and strategies developed, planned and implemented to recognize and address their concerns. All groups of stakeholders must be recognized and treated equitably, as part of good governance. Stakeholder management involves both hard and soft skills, with some understanding of human nature, culture and communications added, finished off with the ability to influence and negotiate with integrity.
