Predicting the impact of stakeholders decisions

  1. 1. Predicting the Degree of Impact ofStakeholders’ Decisions over an IT Project Copyright (c) 2012 Pragmatic Cohesion 1 Consulting
  2. 2. Question• This presentation attempts to offer an answer to the following question: – How much influence a Stakeholder Group’s decisions or actions will have on subsequent decisions or actions in an IT project given the influence of all preceding decisions made during the project by its Stakeholders? Copyright (c) 2012 Pragmatic Cohesion 2 Consulting
  3. 3. Approach• We use the qualitative and quantitative model created by Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting in its presentation titled: – “Managing enterprise stakeholders collaboration a qualitative and quantitative rational approach”• We strongly recommend that the interested reader views this presentation to gain a more advanced understanding of our model.

  4. 4. Answer• A Stakeholder Group’s decision impact can be captured by how much their decisions influence themselves and how much their decisions influence contiguous Stakeholder Groups. For example: – If the Planners have 100% integration i,e, their decisions influence all the Aspects of their perspective on Enterprise Architecture; their total influence on the Enterprise Architecture is distributed as 85% on their own perspective and 15% on the Owners perspective. – If the Owners have 100% integration and provide zero feedback to the Planners then their total influence on the Enterprise Architecture is distributed as 85% on their perspective and 15% on the Architects perspective. – Similarly, Architects and Engineers’ influences are each distributed as 85% on their perspective and 15% on the perspective immediately below them. – Programmers’ total influence is 100% if they have 100% integration and 0% feedback to the Engineers.• The following figure illustrates these influences ratios Copyright (c) 2012 Pragmatic Cohesion 4 Consulting

  6. 6. Answer• The influences ratios previously presented are local influences in the sense that they quantify the interaction of a Perspective with itself and its neighboring ones in the Zachman FrameworkTM for Enterprise Architecture• Over N consecutive steps, the model shows the degree of influence of any Stakeholder Group’s decisions in comparison to the total set of decisions made by all Stakeholder Groups given the Stakeholder Group that makes the first decision.

  7. 7. Answer• With the above Stakeholders local influences (that do not incorporate feedback information), the model shows that Planners start the decision process with 85% influence; the influence of their decisions drops rapidly by about one half at step 6, down to 40%.• At step 15, Planners decisions’ influence is down to 10%.• By step 30, Planners decisions’ influence is close to 0%.• Programmers and Technicians decisions’ influence climb rapidly from 0% to around 30% at step 19 and remain the most influential from that point forward until reaching 65% at step 30.

  8. 8. Answer• Several scenarios can be explored such as: – “What happens to the above decisions’ influences if the Owners, or the Architects make the first decision?”• Furthermore, each Stakeholder Group local influences can be adjusted prior to running any scenario.

  9. 9. Another Question• “What should the Stakeholder Groups’ local influences be to generate converging influences among all 5 stakeholder groups where the hierarchy of decision influences remains in the following decreasing order of importance: Planners, Owners, Architects, Engineers, Programmers and Technicians; up to becoming equally distributed at 20% among all Stakeholder Groups by step 30?” Copyright (c) 2012 Pragmatic Cohesion 9 Consulting
  10. 10. Answer• The local Stakeholders’ influences have to be: – Planners: 85% on themselves, 15% on Owners – Owners: 66% on themselves, 19% on Architects, 15% feedback on Planners – Architects: 63% on themselves, 20% on Engineers, 17% feedback on Owners – Engineers: 71% on themselves, 15% on programmers and technicians, 14% feedback on Architects – Programmers and Technicians: 88% on themselves and 12% feedback on Engineers.• An illustration is given in the following slide: Copyright (c) 2012 Pragmatic Cohesion 10 Consulting
