  • Internal stakeholder - someone who affects or can be affected by the work a product manager performs. Examples of internal stakeholders are product designers, developers, and the executive team.
  • External stakeholder - someone who is interested in or has influence over the product. Examples of external stakeholders are shareholders, consultants, and industry analysts.
