Although issues with stakeholder management are reported as a main factor for the failure of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), virtually no research has examined stakeholders' influence and the salience of their management in PPPs. This paper provides a theoretical framework and a comparative case study of four large infrastructure projects, which indicate how the most influential stakeholders should be identified and managed during the PPP life cycle. The proposed stakeholder framework builds upon Mitchell et al.'s (1997) stakeholder identification and salience framework. The multiple case study analysis then describes an examination of actual stakeholder influences and changes in them. Finally, based on the findings of the comparative case analysis and the influence identification, a dynamic dual stakeholder analysis is proposed and a 5-step approach for the stakeholder management of PPPs is constructed.
