Identify Stakeholders: Tools and Techniques This knowledge will form a key element of how you manager each of your stakeholders. ● Low (Interest)—Low (Authority) quadrant. These stakeholders need a simply strategy that will reassure them that the project is meeting their needs. They need the lowest level of management. ● Low (Interest)—High (Authority) quadrant. This stakeholder group can wield significant power over your project and how you manage them must ensure they are kept informed accordingly retaining their valuable support. It requires a nominal amount of management time due to their low interest in the project, but must be specific to the stakeholder’s role in the project. ● High (Interest)—Low (Authority) quadrant. Neglecting this group just because their authority is low is a bad management strategy. Their interest in the project is high so your management efforts are greater than the previous group and focus on convincing them that their interests are being serviced. ● High (Interest)—High (Authority) quadrant. As you would expect these stakeholders need the project manager to carefully and closely manage their ways to keep them informed and supportive as the project progresses.
