Stakeholder Mapping

Stakeholder Mapping, a key strategic business tool, helps to ensure projects succeed where others might fail. Our approach is to identify the opinions of the entire range of stakeholders to a project, identify the opinion leaders from a wide range of perspectives and map the trends and degree of pressures that might be placed on a project.

Our mapping strategy provides for communication with stakeholders on an ongoing basis, understand changes and trends in thinking, and creates an ability to anticipate reactions to a project while building a plan of action that win’s stakeholder support.

Our stakeholder–mapping package includes the following:

  • Conduct interviews with internal stakeholders, from top management to field levels with particular emphasis on those who have responsibility for the sustainability questions at issue. Prepare in cooperative with company staff;
  • Explain how the team will gain its information without upsetting the status quo;
  • Shape the scope of the mapping in cooperation with corporate management;
  • Conduct in-country field interviews with a wide range of stakeholders to best understand both the risk identification and what options to resolve;
  • Identify practical mitigation processes based on field interviews, research, corporate interviews;
  • Implement.
