  4. 4. Stakeholder Analysis Depending on the size and the context in which the project exists (IT&T, construction, humanitarian) it can be difficult ensure you have capture all stakeholders. So you need to be proactive in your analysis. The checklist in the Stakeholder Register Template is a good place to start but you will need to refine it and learn more about your stakeholders. To do this you can use a number of investigation methods: 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 4
  5. 5. Engaging Experts There are always key people who are in a good position to identify potential stakeholders. Consider approaching researchers, academics, advisers, local councilors and their staff. 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 5
  6. 6. Self-Selection Invite potential stakeholders to join in the dialogue through the local media (newspapers, radio, TV). This mechanism is a good tool to demonstrate how you have provided potential stakeholders an opportunity to identify themselves. 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 6
  7. 7. Engaging Other Stakeholders Similar to “engaging experts” you will find that the stakeholders themselves may have a unique perspective on who else should be considered as a stakeholders. It’s important to realize that this opinion comes with baggage and may only introduce ”supporters” to the stakeholders stance as opposed to stakeholders with a different opinion/perspective. 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 7
  8. 8. Written Reports / Data You can find stakeholders by researching written reports and hard data such as surveys like a population and housing census or directories / organization charts or even report developed by business or community advocacy groups. 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 8
  9. 9. Oral History The oral traditions of modern and traditional societies contain a wealth of information that may help you identify other key stakeholders. Take the time to listen and ask question to elaborate on the key players in a major event. 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 9
  10. 10. The Stakeholder Register As you identify your stakeholders, meet with them and learn more about them, you will need to consolidate your notes in preparation for performing the stakeholder analysis. 408.656.2498 omoreno@hotmail.com 10
