Stakeholders and program plan chatting

I found a chart on stakeholder relations. My first instinct was to shove everyone into the Keep Satisfied section and I actually found the “manage closely” section to be a little confusing. I can’t manage high power people in my organization…it’s usually the other way around. The examples used in the description of chart plotting were your boss and your family. Your family is likely to have high interest (in you) but not a lot of power over the way decisions are made. Your boss is likely to have both power and interest so you need to fully engage with the boss, and they will take the most effort to keep happy. So “manage closely” isn’t intended to denote power, but rather priority.



I also found a really need mind-map of program planning.
