System Dynamics Glossary

What is the meaning of Stakeholder?

A stakeholder is a person involved in, or affected by, the process of developing an organisational change or strategic intervention, or the outcome of that intervention. Eden and Ackermann (1998: 117-118) note that stakeholders need to be recognised for being associated with interactions that are dynamic and possibly unstable. Stakeholders are managed only as a means to pursuing strategic ends. Stakeholders are not treated as having rights, only as having power and interest.
