Each project stakeholder has different expectations from a given project. It is not uncommon to see that Project managers struggle to understand stakeholder’s expectations. The problem gets compounded when project stakeholder gets different picture of project at different time based on information shared by project manager. Stakeholder’s also see project from their own perspective and derives his/her impression of project progress, responsibility and accountability from what s/he can view and what s/he is informed about. If project manager is manually going to update stakeholders like team members, sponsors, customers, auditor about project information, there are very high chances that project manager may miss out on keeping them updated or miss out on the information s/he should have shared. It is important for success of a project that stakeholders should see same project information, of course filtered according to their level of involvement and decision making.
