Mapping the stakeholders
What interests do they have and what benefits can they get from the project
How can they contribute and what resources can provide
What expectations and requirements do they have of the project
What interests do they have that can conflict with the project
How are they prepared to address these conflicts of interests

Motivations are intimately linked to Expectations from the project and can be a predictor of Committment in the project.
