As you can see in the Stakeholder Register displayed above, there are two external stakeholders and on internal. The external stakeholders require weekly communication via video conferencing. This is probably because the development team is not located in the same geography as the stakeholder. A stakeholder can influence the project in many ways, there are generally four categories: Positive Influencer, Negative Influencer, Supporter, and Road Block. In this example, Mandy Ali is a supporter. This is probably because the project is part of a larger initiative, which she is responsible for. For the Stakeholder Register of the larger register, she is probably an Influencer.
The value of a Stakeholder Register is dependent on Stakeholder Analysis. Make sure you spend time on this and use appropriate tools, such as the Salience Model for Stakeholder Management.
