Third Parties Roles in Project Scoping

By mikenwafor ·
It may be easy to get a client/sponsor to sit in sessions to define projects. The main issue is what to do when the project's vision involves 3rd parties like Banks, Telcos, etc. as part of the ultimate implementation/solution. Do you bring them in at these sessions? What about confidentiality and the risk of having your client's vision stolen before implementation?

Definition of Stakeholders

by JamesRL In reply to Third Parties Roles in Pr ...

A stakeholder is someone who has skin in the game - someone who will receive the defined benefits from the project, or contribute to the success of the project.

In most circumstances, a service provider like a bank or a telco, are not stakeholders, and should not be involved in the definition of the mission, objectives or initial scope of the project. If the project touches them, they may have requirements, but it is not a good idea to bring them in befor ethings have solidified.
