The first step in the process of stakeholder engagement is stakeholder identification–determining who your project stakeholders are, and their key groupings and sub-groupings. (Remember that certain stakeholder groups might be pre-determined through regulatory requirements.) From this flows stakeholder analysis, a more in-depth look at stakeholder group interests, how they will be affected and to what degree, and what influence they could have on your project. The answers to these questions will provide the basis from which to build your stakeholder engagement strategy. Here it is important to keep in mind that not all stakeholders in a particular group or sub-group will necessarily share the same concerns or have unified opinions or priorities.
