Stakeholder Mapping with William Merritt Centre

WMDLC group

Located in Rodley, West Yorkshire, William Merritt is a charity offering impartial advice and professional assessments on a wide range of disabled and assisted living equipment. On 13th February 2018 OneWorkforce facilitated a Stakeholder Mapping Workshop for the William Merritt team consisting of Trustees, Senior Managers and employees of the organisation.

Workshop Objectives

  • To be able to define a ‘stakeholder’
  • To identify key stakeholders for William Merritt
  • To identify the benefits and communication requirements for each stakeholder
  • To identify who is best placed to develop and then maintain the relationship with each stakeholder

 

Workshop Content
Using a combination of interactive tasks, videos and group based discussions the William Merritt team were encouraged to challenge their approach to defining a stakeholder.
The team were then guided to explore future potential business opportunities in line with their organisational strategy, identifying new mutually beneficial stakeholders.
Using the OneWorkforce Stakeholder Mapping Framework and Toolkit, the team were encouraged to consider the priority of the stakeholder, the most relevant form of communication method and the most appropriate individual for managing the relationship.
The results were presented to William Merritt in a post-workshop debrief alongside a Stakeholder Tracker template to support with the next steps.
