Contact Us for any of the following services

Rapid

A quick way to generate a baseline stakeholder map for a new initiative. Total from initial contact to finished map is 6-8 weeks, with quicker turnaround possible in special cases.

The process involves:
A. 1-2 hour facilitated telecon with a core group to specify stakeholder categories
B. 1-2 hour facilitated telecon with the same core group to identify interests,
C. Development and pre-testing of the stakeholder mapping survey instrument (approx. 1 week),
D. Identification of appropriate stakeholder representatives to survey and distribution of the survey instrument (2-3 weeks),
E. Analysis of the results and preparation of the stakeholder mapping report (approx. 1 week).

Serial reuse of the same instrument provides an economical means of tracking alignment and progress over time

Facilitated Summit Dialogue

A higher level of facilitation and input comes if WayMark leads half-day, full-day or two-day summit session, informed by the stakeholder mapping results and designed to produce some or all of the following:

  • A shared vision of success
  • A charter or framework for action implications
  • A set of stakeholder-specific value propositions

Custom Stakeholder Mapping

More complex projects may benefit from more consultation and facilitation time, custom stakeholder survey instrument design, advanced analytics, or other custom services

Web-Based Scalable Services

Our long-term vision centers on translating our hands-on experience with stakeholder alignment into a set of scalable, semi-automated digital tools and services.  Potential partners interested in investing in this work should contact us for further dialogue.
