Stakeholders are any people, groups or organizational units, inside or outside your department, that are impacted by the decisions you make and the actions you take.  They may have a positive or negative influence on your ability to accomplish your goals.  Stakeholder networks coalesce around issues and they are often very influential when it comes to initiating change. Stakeholder engagement is a continuous process of identifying, getting to know the values and interests of various stakeholder groups, and working to incorporate their concerns and the outcomes they desire into your decisions and strategies.
