Who is a stakeholder?
Brainstorm who your stakeholders are.
Face your biases.
Engage in scenario planning.
View from the outside in.
Ask yourself the hard questions — and answer them.
Engage them — and not just when you need them.
It’s a never-ending process.
“If the stakes are high enough and the project or idea important enough, analysis like this on the front end can save time and money, and may even be the difference between something happening or it getting tabled. ”
