Project support for customers and end users

Other possible stakeholders include customers or end users. There's no direct Microsoft Project support for such stakeholders. However, you can provide them with Project Web Access or periodically publish a view designed for them on a Web site.

For more information about Project Web Access, see Chapters 23 and 24. For more information about publishing project information, see Chapter 12.

Managing stakeholders can influence the planning processes of a project and help set the expectations and assumptions of the project. Sometimes the expectations of different stakeholders conflict with one other. It's the job of the project manager to balance and reconcile these conflicts well before project execution begins.

Managing stakeholders might also impose new requirements that require adjustments to the finish date, budget, or scope. Even if this happens in the midst of execution, you can use Microsoft Project to make adjustments responding to the new demands.
