stakeholder

An individual, group, or organization that have an interest or concern regarding a project, and may affect, be affected by, or perceive itself to be affected by a decision, activity, or outcome of a project, program, or portfolio.

Stakeholders can be divided up into two categories, positive stakeholders and negative stakeholders, and often have to be managed or engaged throughout the life of the project, either through regular communications or active participation in the project.  A positive stakeholder will benefit (directly or indirectly) from the successful completion of a project. Negative stakeholders will be affected negatively (directly or indirectly) by a successfully completed project.
