This blog will try to identify the different stockholders to “HR Development Scheme” Project, which is an HR Project in Takatuf. The blog will also will distribute the stockholders to 6 major categories and will analyze their information, interest, influence, impact (execution). Impact (operation) to determine the importance of each stakeholder based on their analysis scare.

  1. AWESOME case study Hani and you did a really great job of “telling us the story”. The only “demerit” is you are not citing your work properly using APA format……

    There is or should be no excuse for not doing this correctly as I have provided you with several references on how to do it, including a cite which automatically will cite your references correctly…..



    Given your interest in stakeholders, be sure to look into the Logical Framework Approach (LFA)




    My suggestion for a future blog posting would be to do one on using the LFA in your course design.
