Under­stand­ing and work­ing with the com­plex land­scapes of stake­hold­ers and inter­ests is some of the hard­est and most impor­tant work to be done in mod­ern soci­ety. This was true of the North­ern Ire­land peace process and it is true now in Colum­bia with the rein­te­gra­tion of the FARC into civ­il soci­ety — both domains where I have been involved. I like the idea of sys­tem­at­ic tools and meth­ods to under­stand these land­scapes and saw this first hand with the glob­al map of stake­hold­ers and inter­ests in the dig­i­tal fab­ri­ca­tion ecosys­tem.

The stake­hold­er map­ping and facil­i­ta­tion sup­port pro­vid­ed by Way­Mark accel­er­at­ed progress in bring­ing togeth­er a con­sor­tium span­ning over twen­ty uni­ver­si­ties. We now have a robust char­ter and guid­ing vision that is mak­ing con­tin­ued progress pos­si­ble. Way­Mark under­stands how to deliv­er results when there are many stake­hold­ers and many com­plex issues on the table.

When we launched i‑Samples — a glob­al ini­tia­tive cen­tered on the dig­i­tal ecosys­tem of data on phys­i­cal sam­ples in the geo­sciences — the series of stake­hold­er maps helped us to find com­mon inter­ests ear­ly and track progress over time. This evi­dence-based approach brings rig­or­ous social sci­ence meth­ods to the sci­ence enter­prise — in prac­ti­cal and use­ful ways.
