Stakeholder analysis is a process of identifying and understanding the key players in a given situation or project. It helps in understanding the different roles and interests of different stakeholders. The stakeholder map with roles can be used to identify the different roles of stakeholders in a given situation and understand their interests. Using this tool, one can also see how various stakeholders might work together and what they might have to offer to each other. This tool is helpful in assessing what needs to be done before starting a project as well as during its progress.
