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.
