CDC UP Stakeholder Analysis Template

Date: October 30, 2018

A stakeholder matrix is a tool that allows the project manager to classify the people involved in a project. Typically, this information is presented in a tabular format that maps stakeholders to the amount of influence and impact each has over the project and lays out the strategy for engaging them. The stakeholder matrix facilitates and documents the stakeholder analysis that occurs early in the project planning phase, and should be updated regularly throughout the project lifecycle.

The CDC UP framework provides a useful template for performing a stakeholder analysis.
