How to Use a Stakeholder Map Template

Creating a stakeholder map can help you identify and categorize people who have an interest in a project or business and how to best engage them. Here are five steps to help you make a stakeholder map:

1. Identify stakeholders

The first step is to identify who all the stakeholders are in your project. These can be anyone from shareholders and customers to suppliers and employees.

Create tasks in ClickUp to list each stakeholder and their contact information.

2. Assess their interest

Once you’ve identified the stakeholders, you need to assess their level of interest in your project. This could range from low to high, with low being uninterested and high being extremely interested..

Use Dashboards in ClickUp to quickly assess the level of interest of each stakeholder and keep track of it.

3. Categorize stakeholders

Now, you need to categorize the stakeholders based on their level of interest. You can do this by creating different categories such as “Low Interest”, “Medium Interest”, and “High Interest”.

Use custom fields in ClickUp to assign categories to each stakeholder based on their level of interest.

4. Prioritize engagement

Once you’ve categorized the stakeholders, it’s time to prioritize their engagement. This means you should focus on engaging with the stakeholders who are the most interested in your project first.

Use Milestones in ClickUp to set goals for engaging with stakeholders based on their level of interest.

5. Monitor progress

Finally, it’s important to monitor your progress in engaging with the stakeholders. This will help you stay on track and make sure that you’re reaching out to the right people at the right time.

Use the Gantt chart in ClickUp to track progress in engaging with stakeholders.
