DescriptionAs organizations respond to the ongoing complex challenges driven by technological, social, and environmental factors, the involvement of multiple stakeholders in the system development process has become the norm. Yet, a gap in literature exists concerning the elicitation of preferences from multiple stakeholders to better understand the requirements of the project. With the use of a vignette and survey research approach, this study demonstrates how perceived individual stakeholder identity within a multi-stakeholder project could influence perceptions towards the importance of system attributes and perceived value for multi-stakeholder projects such as the SPORT satellite. Although the statistical results merely provide a proof of concept for the methods applied, our study has direct implications for the approaches used by practitioners to elicit preferences in complex, multi-stakeholder projects.
