Stakeholder Mapping Should Focus More on Relationships between Stakeholders and Their Interplay
In my opinion we should increasingly focus stakeholder mapping on the relationships and dynamics between various stakeholders
, rather than the individual significance and influential ability of each stakeholder. Mapping of these relationships and their nature, magnitude and strength of these become more important.
Such mapping works very well in conjunction with a value chain
approach as I have seen in the last few years working on clusters
and regional development projects.
