Stakeholder Management Project Stakeholder Management is under the 13.0 project knowledge area and entails four management process groups. The process groups are (1) Initial Planning, (2) Planning, (3) Executing, and (4) Monitoring and Controlling. What is important to note is without proper management of stakeholders, the probability of project failures are high. Additionally, the risk to a project being completed successfully also goes up.
