A feature-based Modeling Strategy for Managing Stakeholders
AbstractSuccessful product development is mostly based on how well ideas,
opinions, and contributions from stakeholders are taken into account.
There are signs that the way a project manager involves stakeholders in
the project is directly linked to how well software products are
delivered. Engagement of stakeholders enables organizations to
proactively consider the requirements and desires of anyone with a stake
in the stakeholder management process. For the stakeholder management
process to work, all stakeholders must be listed in a reference
document, and their involvement in the process must be kept up-to-date.
The main goal of this study is to find a solution to this problem by
coming up with a feature-based strategy for capturing and documenting
the right stakeholders during the stakeholder management process. The
strategy also supports ongoing monitoring of the status and attributes
of stakeholders during this process. To evaluate the strategy, we have
conducted a case study on the stakeholder management process of Smart
Home to assess the ease of use, usefulness, effectiveness, and
efficiency of the proposed strategy. The results reveal that our
strategy of documenting and keeping track of the stakeholders makes the
stockholder management process more effective and efficient. The results
have also shown that the proposed strategy is considered easy to learn
and useful by the software engineers.
