First, you need to read the stakeholder definition, and then you reply to both the discussion question and the stakeholder question.
Though Janssen and Wimmer (2015) used the word stakeholder over 600 times in their textbook, yet they failed to define the stakeholder. However, one may use the manual of the Project Management Institute (PMI, 2017), and borrow the definition of a stakeholder:
â€œ a stakeholder is an individual, group, or organization that may affect, be affected by, or perceive itself to be affected by a decision, activity, or the outcome of a project. Project stakeholders may be internal or external to the project; they may be actively involved, passively involved, or unaware of the project. Project stakeholders may have a positive or negative impact on the project or be positively or negatively impacted by the projectâ€ (PMI, 2017).
As a STUDENT, you will include a section of definitions as a part of your dissertation. The above description is an opportunity to start viewing definitions, and you need to write your reflection on the above definition.

Chapter 9 discussed the importance of stakeholder engagement in policymaking. The authors presented several benefits and an analysis of five cases in which stakeholder engagement added value to the policymaking process. If you were leading a project to develop a comprehensive policy for managing pedestrian traffic flow in a popular downtown metropolitan district, what measures would you take to engage stakeholders in that project? Your answer should outline your suggestions and clearly explain why each one would add value.
