The PMBOK is unclear. Is the definition for impact in regards to a impact/influence grid, the ability to cause changes to the project's planning or execution?

Hi Ben,

Stakeholders with a strong influence may impact the progress of a project. For example, a senior manager who oversees the hiring process, or a displeased group of residents in a construction project.

Hope this helps,
