· What financial or emotional interest does the audience have in the outcome of your work? Is it positive or negative?

The emotional interest these patients have in the outcome of this business plan is to gain a community of fellowship through DaVita. To learn that others are facing the same issues and that help is there for them. The only positive feeling should come from what this plan is trying to create for the patients, the best possible healthcare for a patient suffering from kidney failure all over the world.

· What motivates them most of all?

Patients motivation come from an engaging atmosphere of positivity. They can be feeling better and they will with the help of these machines. Life does not have to end when they receive the news they have kidney failure.

· What information do they want from you, and what is the best way of communicating with them?

Patients’ need to be educated on what kidney failure is. How kidney failure can be treated, and what different types of modality there are to offer patients.

· What is the audience’s current opinion of your work?

Patients have been receiving the healthcare they deserve through the work of DaVita. Knowledge in knowing all that DaVita can offer patients has been a definite life changer for many patients.

· Who influences their opinions generally? Do these influencers become important stakeholders?

Generally, patients will be influenced by either teammate or patients that have spoken about DaVita. Yes, the influencers, therefore, become essential stakeholders in their own right of course. Without the influencers, the message of DaVita would fail.

· If they aren’t likely to be positive, what will win them around to support your project?

A mind that is made up can be changed in time. If the patients have negative feelings towards the DaVita with time, it could change. They may learn something new about the organization or finally realize that DaVita wants to help make them live their best lives possible with kidney failure. The only way I can see changing their minds is through education on what DaVita has to offer them. The amount of support they will receive through having a dietician, social worker, facility administrator, private nurse, and nephrologist all looking at their care will entice them to give DaVita a try.
