Stakeholder Analysis is a critical tool for any project requiring the input from a diverse group of customers. By customers, I mean internal as well as external. This tool is especially important in change management initiatives as is the case with many six sigma and lean transformations.
This tool is for you if:
- You need help organizing who your stakeholders.
- You need help categorizing which stakeholders need to be informed, which stakeholders need to approve, which stakeholders need to strongly support and which stakeholders you can afford to ignore but not alienate.
This stakeholder template is easy to use and provides an simple visual way to see all the stakeholders in one view and can be the backdrop for how to deploy your change management program more strategically. The output of this tool can be an input into a relationship or diplomatic strategy of buy-in and persuasion.
