Stakeholder is the group of people or an individual who is directly or indirectly impacted by any kind of changes made in the business. The stakeholders could be internal or external. The different types of stakeholders and impact of organizational change on them would be as following:
Owner/shareholders: The owner and the shareholders would like to see that their company is making profit for them. Any changes done in the organization would directly impact the business of the company and the profits may increase or it could go into loss due to these changes. The owners and the shareholders would have monetary impact of the changes implemented in the organization (Kotler, 2011).
Customers: The customers are also one of the major stakeholders in any organization and any organizational change affects them directly or indirectly. For example if any of the e-commerce website wants to go through a change of the look and feel of their website because of any of the reasons then the customers who use their website for shopping have to adapt to this change. If they are unable to understand the changes then they would simply move to a new e-commerce website.
Managers: The managers of the company plan the details of the change which is to be done. They are highly experienced people who use their foresight to plan everything in detail. All the risks are to be well managed by them and they are responsible for any failures in the change which is to be implemented in the company.
