How does this help your team?
In short, a stakeholder is someone who helps you decide what is valuable to work on next because it’s important to them the product succeeds.
In our work with Scrum teams, we've noticed that many of them don't frequently interact with their real stakeholders. Sure, they occasionally host a Sprint Review but are the attendee's stakeholders, or just people with an opinion about the product? There are various reasons why they don't frequently interact with stakeholders. It could be that Scrum teams don't know who their real stakeholders are, or they don't know *how* to involve them.
It's important to frequently engage with your stakeholders. You need their experiences, ideas, and feedback to learn what to build next. Maybe, while using an early version of the product, an important new insight emerged that impacts the roadmap and Product Backlog. Or changed circumstances in the market require a quick release of a specific feature. You'll only discover this when you closely collaborate with your stakeholders.
If you recognize this situation and want to improve it, consider giving this do-it-yourself workshop a try. For example, during the Sprint Review. You'll use the Liberating Structure UX Fishbowl to actively listen to your stakeholders and together gain new ideas, insights, and improvements.
