Stakeholders are individuals or groups of people (whānau, families, communities, iwi, organisations, and businesses) with a vested interest in a technological outcome, and/or its development.
Key stakeholders are those people that are directly influential or will be directly impacted on by the technological practice itself and/or its resulting outcomes. This impact can include the technological outcome and any other by-products. A key stakeholder is the intended end-user of the outcome.
Wider (community) stakeholders are those people less directly influential on or impacted by the practice or outcome. They have some level of influence, often through others. They may be affected by the project or its outcome in the future.
