Stakeholders in a project make decisions, provide input, deliver work, and impact your project's success. Stakeholders may be the project team, functional management, a project sponsor, and most importantly, the customer. Anyone who participates in the project or is impacted by its results is a stakeholder. Each project stakeholder has an essential contribution to make and all stakeholder expectations need to be met.

"This was an excellent introduction to using Microsoft Project. I am new to using Project. I have been attempting to use the software for the past couple months using tutorials from the Microsoft site and miscellaneous pieces of information found online. None of those provided the overall view of how the features of the software tie into managing a project. This course provided the missing link that I needed to better use the tool in my daily tasks."
