  • Stakeholder Maps can help remove barriers in the process of identifying community character.
  • They are very simple to complete, requiring only pen and paper, but may take a significant amount of time and effort in understanding the stakeholders.


  • Stakeholder maps are only useful if they are built upon clear thinking and understandings of the community; they are often most accurate if completed by a diverse group of people.
  • Stakeholder maps may or may not be public documents; they may be most effective when they distinctly characterize stakeholders, but characterizations may offend if they become public.
