This PowerPoint template can be used to present to your stakeholders, and you can assign a notetaker to record their input in the notes section.  The content of the template is a suggestion; you can customize it to fit your needs. Then when the next year’s meeting comes around, just update the content.  It can be emailed, shown in person, shared through an online conferencing service.

We have put together a chart with examples of questions you can ask your stakeholders to obtain targeted input.  We organized the questions around the 10 National Standards for DSMES.  We hope you find it useful for your stakeholder meetings.
