Not sure how you will improve on this next year. They have all been very thought-provoking and insightful.
This technique can be used in relation to a particular strategic development such as the launch or withdrawal of a service. Stakeholders should first be plotted in relation to how they would line up — the level and nature for or against of their importance and the extent of their influence.
Again, the best way, and the most accurate way to "brand" my candidacy, is without any false bravado, just the facts. I've consistently performed as the "key" player in guiding senior management on how to identify and convert inefficiencies and inequities in line operations into efficient or new revenue streams. • Stakeholders may be at different levels within the organization and may possess different authority levels, or may be external to the performing organization for the project. • It is critical for project success to identify the stakeholders early in the project, and to analyze their levels of interest, expectations, importance and influence. After internal and external risks in project management are identified and categorized, a risk breakdown structure can be created that assigns risks to specific elements of the project. Relationships between the sources of risks and project elements can then be evaluated via the work breakdown structure to adjust the project plan.
A second map can also be plotted showing how you would need stakeholders to line up if the development were going to have a good chance of success.
By comparing the two maps and looking for the mismatches, priorities for managing stakeholders can be established, as well as priorities for maintaining stakeholders in their current positioning. Each quadrant can be analysed in the following way. In a clockwise rotation: The style of participation for stakeholders needs to be appropriate for gaining and maintaining their ownership.
Stakeholders placed here can be highly important but having low influence or direct power, however need to be kept informed through appropriate education and communication.
Stakeholders here have low influence and low importance and care should be taken to avoid the dangers of unfavourable lobbying and therefore should be closely monitored and kept on board.
Stakeholders placed here can hold potentially high influence but low importance should be kept satisfied with appropriate approval and perhaps bought in as patrons or supporters. However, it is important to recognise, that the map is not static.
Changing events can mean that stakeholders can move around the map with consequent changes to the list of the most influential stakeholders. Monitor and manage stakeholder relationships Stakeholder management is essentially stakeholder relationship management as it is the relationship and not the actual stakeholder groups that are managed.
Principle 1 Managers should acknowledge and actively monitor the concerns of all legitimate stakeholders, and should take their interests appropriately into account in decision-making and operations.
Principle 2 Managers should listen to and openly communicate with stakeholders about their respective concerns and contributions, and about the risks that they assume because of their involvement with the corporation.
Principle 3 Managers should adopt processes and modes of behaviour that are sensitive to the concerns and capabilities of each stakeholder constituency. Principle 4 Managers should recognise the interdependence of efforts and rewards among stakeholders, and should attempt to achieve a fair distribution of the benefits and burdens of corporate activity among them, taking into account their respective risks and vulnerabilities.
Principle 5 Managers should work cooperatively with other entities, both public and private, to ensure that risks and harms arising from corporate activities are minimised and, where they cannot be avoided, appropriately compensated.
Principle 6 Managers should avoid altogether activities that might jeopardise inalienable human rights e. Principle 7 Managers should acknowledge the potential conflicts between a their own role as corporate stakeholders, and b their legal and moral responsibilities for the interests of stakeholders, and should address such conflicts through open communication, appropriate reporting and incentive systems and, where necessary, third party review.
The lower levels, manipulation, therapy, informing relate to situations in which the organisation is merely informing stakeholders about decisions that have already taken place, although these levels represent bad practice if done in isolation. At middle levels, explaining, placation, consultation, negotiation stakeholders have the opportunity to voice their concerns prior to a decision being made, but with no assurance that their concerns will impact on the end result.
The highest levels, involvement, collaboration, partnership, delegated power, stakeholder control are characterised by active or responsive attempts at empowering stakeholders in corporate decision-making.The project management industry has put a lot of focus in recent years on the importance of stakeholder relationships.
Project management practitioners and leading thinkers in the field have emphasized that a good project manager isn’t just someone who is good at keeping track of all the tasks.

Understanding Organisations: Identifying and managing internal and external stakeholder interests Definitions: Stakeholder is a person who has something to gain or lose through the outcomes of a planning process, programme or project (Dialogue by Design, )..
Stakeholder Engagement is the process of effectively eliciting stakeholders’ views on their relationship with the organisation. Internal and external factors have a huge effect on the success or failure of a business. Business owners can’t control external factors, but they must be able to anticipate and adjust to these factors to keep their organizations on track.
