Stakeholder Register Template

What is Stakeholder Register Template?

A Stakeholder Register Template is a document or spreadsheet used to identify, organize, and manage stakeholders in a project or organization. It serves as a comprehensive tool for stakeholder management by providing a structured approach to identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing stakeholders.

Here is a general template for a Stakeholder Register:

Stakeholder ID

  • Unique identifier for each stakeholder


  • Full name of the stakeholder


  • Brief description of the stakeholder's role in the project or organization (e.g., customer, investor, team member)


  • Summary of the stakeholder's interests, needs, and expectations related to the project or organization


  • Level of influence the stakeholder has on the project or organization (high, medium, low)


  • Level of interest or concern the stakeholder has in the project or organization (high, medium, low)

Communication Needs

  • Description of how and what information each stakeholder needs to be communicated effectively

Frequency of Interaction

  • Estimated frequency of interaction with each stakeholder (e.g., daily, weekly, monthly)

Potential Impact

  • Assessment of the potential impact each stakeholder could have on the project or organization if their needs are not met

Mitigation Strategies

  • Identification of strategies to mitigate risks and address concerns related to each stakeholder


  • Any additional notes or comments about the stakeholder's role, interests, or interactions

The Stakeholder Register Template is often used in conjunction with other tools, such as a stakeholder analysis matrix or a communication plan, to ensure effective stakeholder engagement and management. By using this template, project managers and organizations can:

  1. Identify all stakeholders involved in the project or organization
  2. Analyze their interests, needs, and expectations
  3. Prioritize stakeholders based on their level of influence and interest
  4. Develop targeted communication strategies to engage with each stakeholder
  5. Monitor and adjust stakeholder engagement efforts as needed

Remember that every organization is unique, and the Stakeholder Register Template may need to be tailored to fit specific needs and requirements.
