Who Really Matters?
The implementation of any project requires clear thinking about the relative importance of stakeholders in achieving project outcomes. The Victorian Department of Primary Industries developed this stakeholder analysis tool suited to project planning, which allows project teams to consider the important human and social capital resources required to improve project planning and implementation.
The tool features a 16 square matrix with two axes focused on stakeholders who are:
- Influential – stakeholders who have power over the organisation, or management of
the project (x-axis), and
- Important – stakeholders who have power over project implementation or outcome
