Background on this Stakeholder Management Toolkit with Streamlined Stakeholder Assessment Templates & Reporting Dashboards
As a Sr. Organizational Change Management Lead & Project Management Consultant, I have successfully delivered large-scale business initiatives that have impacted thousands of employees and stakeholders across Apple, Cisco, HSBC, Intel, Accenture, Deloitte, Capital One, State Street, and other global firms.
Throughout my consulting career, one major challenge voiced by change practitioners and project managers has been a lack of a standardized all-in-one set of stakeholder analysis tools that can be used across any industry, organization, and region for managing key stakeholders in a project.
And so, as a Pioneer of best business change toolkits, and a strong Advocate of the change management and program management communities I decided to work with AGS Designers and Developers to launch the All-in-One Stakeholder Toolkit below, which includes defined, and easy to use stakeholder plans, stakeholder mapping templates, streamlined matrix, samples, and step-by-step guides.

Do You Need to Enter a Stakeholder Type in Your Stakeholder Matrix?
Most definitely. When conducting stakeholder assessments using any type of stakeholder management software or stakeholder analysis template Excel versions, it is important that you enter the type of stakeholder a person is for a particular project, otherwise planning your stakeholder engagement is going to take you a lot more time.
How so? If you don’t flag a stakeholder by their type then whenever you or anyone else looks at your stakeholder mapping matrix, they won’t be able to determine who is who.
Important to Use Stakeholder Analysis Tools that Allow You to Enter Stakeholder Type
When populating the AGS stakeholder management plan template, you’ll want to enter the Stakeholder Type for each stakeholder you are assessing and managing.
Examples of Stakeholder Type:
- Department Head
- Change Agent / Champion
- Steering Committee Member
- Impacted End-User
Using the stakeholder type column in the AGS stakeholder mapping tool makes it easy to sort and filter your stakeholders by type as you’re doing your analysis and implementing your stakeholder strategy.
If you wanted to export a specific group of stakeholders from the stakeholder assessment matrix, for example, “Change Agents,” and import them into another toolkit, such as a Change Champions & Agents Toolkit, if you already have them tagged by type, it’s easy.
You would simply export your stakeholder matrix data, sort on the Stakeholder Type Column to bring all your Change Agents together, and import just those stakeholder types into the template. This process makes your entire stakeholder strategy implementation easy to implement.
(Get Instant Access!)
Your AGS stakeholder analysis matrix template is designed to be seamless, easy to use, and ready to go starting from day 1. Note that you can also export your reports to PDF or PPT and if needed, you can then save these as a stakeholder engagement plan template Word version to share with others.

Developing This Year’s Best Stakeholder Management Software for Stakeholder Mapping, Assessment, Tracking, & Management
We often get questions from clients and other change practitioners including “which tools are the best stakeholder management software tools to use for mid-to-large scale projects.” We’ve also heard comments like “if only I had an easy-to-use stakeholder engagement dashboard and stakeholder assessment tool.”
From experience we have learned that to better increase the success of your stakeholder assessment, mapping, engagement, and management, it is essential that you apply a structured change management process.
You should also leverage a best stakeholder assessment tool, also referred to as stakeholder management software, that interactively allows you to see which stakeholders are receptive to the change, which ones are resisting the change, and which stakeholders need additional engagement to increase their receptiveness to the change.
While several best stakeholder management software tools can be found on the market today, not all of them are part of an integrated and holistic change platform, like AGS 360° Portfolio.
These stakeholder assessment tools allow you to conduct stakeholder mapping only, and others include an easy-to-use stakeholder engagement dashboard that provides you with graphical analytics. It’s important to consider ease of use and scalability when choosing any top stakeholder analysis template or tool.
Excellent ROI from the first month!
