Scrum teams exist to deliver value to their stakeholders. It's a bit of a platitude, right? What is value? And who are the stakeholders? This poster contains a practice called a "Stakeholder Map". It's designed to create transparency around who your stakeholders are, and how to most effectively involve them to determine what is valuable.
How does this help your team?
Scrum teams need good stakeholders to help them identify what is valuable, what people need, and what the best way is to spend their time and budget to fulfill those needs. We often create a “Stakeholder Map” with teams. Although it is a simplified version of reality, the map creates focus and triggers powerful conversations within Scrum teams.
You can find the Stakeholder Map with an explanation here.
