A stakeholder register is a document containing information on individuals or groups that may be affected in one way or another by the execution of a project, and how they will affect the project’s execution.
The stakeholder register is compiled after the output of the planning stage has been set for execution.
It is one of the first documents to be compiled because it facilitates early and concrete rapport between the different stakeholders.
The stakeholder register is used to create a viable, current plan, schedule, database, etc. that serves as a reference point for drawing the necessary information about the stakeholders. Essentially, this process gives the managerial team all the necessary information needed to reach the stakeholders and get them aboard on projects.
