Stakeholder Mapping

The stakeholder radar can be used when mapping stakeholders to understand the level of interest and importance of the stakeholders.

Depending on where stakeholders are placed on the radar, you can tailor the level and type of engagement you have with them.

You can also group stakeholders into those affected by change and those delivering change.

An alternative way to map stakeholders is using the stakeholder grid below.
