You are managing a large software project for a bank and are about 50% done with the work when a new stakeholder is identified. It turns out the stakeholder will be highly impacted by the new software project. You have a tight deadline and the requirements are already firmly set. What should you do?
A. Ignore the stakeholder B. Meet with the stakeholder to inform them of your project C. Meet with the stakeholder to gather their requirements D. Find someone to blame for not identifying the stakeholder earlier
Meet with the stakeholder to gather their requirements-initiating - communications managementthe correct course of action would be to meet with the stakeholder and document their requirements. you might get lucky and already have all of their requirements taken into consideration. at the very least, you will understand what is missing and if time permits be able to work on thier requirements. ignoring the stakeholder and searching for someone to blame are obviously inappropriate responses. simply informing the stakeholder of your project and not gathering their requirements, as suggested in choice b, would not be appropriate either.
