Stakeholder alignment is the very glue of your effort to create purpose and improve results. Even with small, multi-functional teams, alignment between process, project and customer teams and internal and external stakeholders continues to be a challenging issue. It is crucial that work is aligned with other work activities and with the customer and other stakeholders, and that all people involved have a say in decisions that concern them.
