A project manager of a large manufacturing company is working on a new system that will decrease the bolt manufacturing process by 30 seconds, saving the company 2 percent in annual operating costs. This project will touch all departments and involve senior leadership. The project manager understands stakeholder engagement will be critical to success and spends time analyzing levels of anticipated engagement. She starts by contemplating the head of logistics, who has not commented on or shows any reactions about the project. The executive was present at a recent briefing where she oversaw the charter. What level of engagement will the project manager record for this stakeholder?

A Neutral

There are five levels of classification of stakeholder engagement: unaware, resistant, neutral, supportive, and leading. A stakeholder that is neutral is neither supporting nor resisting the project and may be minimally engaged.
