Stakeholder mapping is a collaborative impact management service. It involves research, debate, and discussion that draws from multiple perspectives to determine a key list of stakeholders and their influences and needs, across the entire organisational spectrum.
Mapping is broken down into listing relevant groups, organizations, and people; understanding stakeholder perspectives and interests, visualizing relationships to program objectives, ranking stakeholder relevance and identifying related issues. This process results in an organisation leading good practice in social impact management, by integrating stakeholder voices into decisions.
