You Need to Know Your Stakeholders
Do you have any idea who your actual stakeholders are? Have you taken the time to get to know them or have other responsibilities taken the place of this? I imagine that many of you are shaking your head that other things have taken precedence over getting to know the groups in your community. You need to know these people. You need to know them because they will be your biggest asset when things eventually get hairy. You must involve all these stakeholders in the process.
