Lesson 12 Assignment Handout

Assignment Instructions

For this assignment, you will develop a stakeholder register based on the information in the project overview. The project overview and a template table have been provided in the handout below. Your task is to determine the following information and enter it into the stakeholder register table:

Stakeholder name: Identify at least eight (8) stakeholders for the sample project. Because you don’t know individuals’ names, you should focus on putting their title (e.g. IT director) or functional role. Remember that stakeholders can be one person or a group of people.

Project role: Populate the expected project role each stakeholder will fill. Are they a team member? A subject matter expert?

Area of influence: Indicate the area of influence for each stakeholder. What part of the project do they influence or will be influenced by? Are they in charge of resources? The budget? Will they design a system?

Influence level: Estimate the level of influence for each stakeholder. Does this stakeholder have a low, medium, or high level of influence? This should be your best guess as to the probable level of influence.

Classification: Indicate the desired engagement level classification defined (unaware, resisting, neutral, supporting, or leading) for each stakeholder.

How to Create a Good Stakeholder Register

A good stakeholder register answers essential questions as you move forward in the project. Here are some questions that can be helpful as you seek to identify stakeholders:

Who will be directly impacted or affected by this project?

Who may be indirectly impacted or affected by this project?

Who may have influence over how this project is implemented?

Who has required expertise and his or her contribution to the project is essential to project success?

Who are the managers that your team reports to? (may influence project assignments)

Who will use the immunization system?

Who will generate reports?

Who will make the determination that this project is a success or failure?

Who is financing this project?

For this assignment, you will create a stakeholder register for the project described below:

Project Overview

You work for the local school district. A new mandate has been handed down that requires every school to record all verified student immunization records into the state immunization database. While it’s not new to verify student immunizations, it has been limited to individual schools and most often a paper-based system. Now paper systems will be converted to a digital system for the entire state. Parents will be able to access the system to get their child’s records, and doctors will update records whenever new immunizations are administered. The good news is that no new computer hardware is needed. The State is providing the immunization system infrastructure and will manage it. However, the school district IT department will need to build the interface to the system.

The project must be completed before enrollment begins next September when the new school year begins. Schools within the district will be required to produce and provide reports to the school board demonstrating they are using the system and tracking each student until immunizations are current and included in the state immunization database. You will need to develop a process to confirm each incoming student has a record in the state immunization database, provide training on the process for each school’s staff, and create a communication plan to inform parents of this new mandate.

Submission Instructions

You may submit your completed assignment using the following template. This template will serve as a starting point for your stakeholder register.
