In  a study  we  carried  out   with interest  in evaluating a livelihoods  project   we had supported,  our involvement of  stakeholders  was  very limited. Largely  this was because    we  had not   budgeted  well  on how many and  who to involve  right from the onset of the program.  We  did  not  experience  much  in terms of  negative  feedback  but when results  came out, we knew  very  well that  these  results  lacked stakeholder endorsement.
