Universities have not been able to manage their stakeholder identification and salience correctly, nor to establish the needs of each stakeholder.

The study sought to determine how the university identified and managed stakeholders for its Research and Innovation Month. This single exploratory case study situated in a qualitative paradigm used interviews, questionnaires and a literature review to collect relevant data.
