is a tool by which a company can recognize stakeholders.
It provides a visual means of identifying stakeholders so that you
can develop an action plan for engagement. Things to think about
when identifying stakeholders:
• Who has a stake (positive or negative) in the problem
• Who is most affected?
• Who are the opinion leaders in the community?
• Who may have knowledge, opinions, values or feelings towards
the company or issue?
• What are the threats, risks, costs and benefits of different
groups for the company?
Links to some guides and examples of how to carry out stakeholder
analysis are available below. The methods can be adapted to apply
to any type of project, business or organisation.
