Stakeholder support is necessary for a successful change proposal project implementation. Consider your internal stakeholders, such as the facility, unit or health care setting where the change process is situated, and your external stakeholders, like an individual or group outside the health care setting. Why is their support necessary to the success of your project, and how you will go about securing that support?
A stakeholder can be defined as a group, organizations, individuals who are likely to be affected, or affect or expect to be affected by an activity, decision or the end result of a project. In most cases stakeholders are affected directly by the project or have interest that are likely to be affected. support is necessary because they have different levels of duty and authority when contributing on a project, they have the capacity to either actively or passively detract a project while projects too have direct impact on stakeholders hence their contribution and support is very key.
