How to take the next step in stakeholder management

  • Responsible: who are the people doing the work, or who do we need to help us achieve our goal?
  • Accountable: who has the final say? Who has the authority to accept or reject the work?
  • Consulted: which stakeholders do we need information or a view from to help us refine our work? Stakeholders in this group will involve two-way communication by you as a PO.
  • Informed: which stakeholders need to be kept updated with what’s happening (usually after a decision is made). This will usually involve one-way communication by you as a PO.
