Not doing a Stakeholder Analysis?

First excuse my writing. Personally I like the article, it gives me a notion of what to expect from a stakeholder analysis. There is one thing that I would like to know. What is the consequence of NOT doing a stakeholder analysis? I can understand why we do it but not really. I know it might sound dumb, but I was told that there is no such thing as a dumb question.

What Happens if a Stakeholder Analysis is not Done?

What will suffer mostly is EXECUTION. What would be theoretically best cannot be executed, because one of the key stakeholders (for example the employees) don't want it to happen.
The "power equation" of the management with employees may be such that the plan cannot be enforced (suppose the employees are underpaid and/or they may easily find jobs outside).


No Stakeholder Analysis is like Having no Map

Starting a change project without stakeholder analysis is like going to a dark mountain forest WITHOUT A MAP or a flashlight. Maybe you will be lucky and not step into the mud, fall into a canyon or bump into a tree, but chances are you will not be so lucky and you will learn the need of the map by your direct experience. It is up to you. What happens depends on your preparation OR just good luck.
