Stakeholder Engagement Tool

Building on the results of the Quadruple Helix Stakeholder analysis workshop, this tool empowers you to dive into the intricate world of stakeholder dynamics. By strategically categorizing and engaging stakeholders within your ecosystem, you unlock the potential for optimized resources and fruitful collaborations. This pivotal step ensures your initiatives not only confront complex challenges but also spark innovation, leading to meaningful and transformative outcomes. Beyond categorization, the tool propels participants to truly understand their stakeholders and craft well-timed, impactful engagement plans—creating opportunities for dynamic and purposeful interactions.

Both ecosystem facilitators, and any member of open innovation ecosystem can benefit from all the Playbook tools.

The facilitator guides the participants to analyze and categorize the stakeholders according to these two dimensions.
