stakeholder analysis is a technique for identifying stakeholders and analysing
their roles. The aim of the analysis is to map out the stakeholders’ level of
influence and degree of interest with regards to the business. Stakeholder
analysis can also be used to assess the relationships between different
stakeholders and the issues they care about most.
stakeholders are individuals or groups who are directly involved in the
business, such as owners, board members, managers, employees, and investors.
External stakeholders are indirectly influenced by the business activities,
like customers, suppliers, competitors, society and government.
By understanding both perspectives, the business can engage and enhance
communication with relevant stakeholders, reduce or prevent risks, identify
business opportunities, improve internal stakeholders’ commitment in the
business and the reputation of the business amongst external stakeholders.
