You’re ready to try the stakeholder analysis yourself!

To do so, use your own context and a health program you are familiar with as your example. Or, you can think about how the polio program might work in a country you are familiar with.

Then, follow these guiding steps:

  • Clearly define the new policy to be considered
  • Identify the key stakeholders of the policy
  • Articulate the current level of power and influence for each stakeholder
  • Articulate the current level of agreement with the policy for each stakeholder
  • Classify the stakeholders into one of the five categories: Drivers, Blockers, Supporters, Bystanders, Abstainers

Share a summary of your stakeholder analysis in Padlet. Then, read other learners’ posts. Choose one post and respond with a question about their analysis.
