Stakeholder Mapping

The salience model

The salience model uses three dimensions: legitimacy (A), power (B), and urgency (C). It is represented in a Venn diagram, that has 8 regions each associated to a specific stakeholder type.

The Covalence model has eight regions each associated with a stakeholder type

Stakeholder types as described by the salience model:

  1. Discretionary stakeholders: These stakeholders have little urgency or power and are unlikely to exert much pressure. They have legitimate claims. (yellow region)

  2. Dormant stakeholders: These stakeholders have much power but no legitimacy or urgency and therefore are not likely to become heavily involved. (blue region)

  3. Demanding stakeholders: These stakeholders have little power or legitimacy but can make much "noise" because they want things to be addressed immediately. (red region)

  4. Dominant stakeholders: These stakeholders have both formal power and legitimacy, but little urgency. They are tend to have certain expectations that must be met. (green region)

  5. Dangerous stakeholders: These stakeholders have power and urgency but are not really pertinent to the project. (purple region)

  6. Dependent stakeholders: These stakeholders have urgent and legitimate stakes in the project but little power. These stakeholders may lean on another stakeholder group to have their voices heard. (orange region)

  7. Definitive stakeholders: These stakeholders have power, legitimacy and urgency and therefore have the highest salience. (white region at the intersection of all other regions)

  8. Non-stakeholders: These stakeholders have no power, legitimacy or urgency. (outside the regions defined by the circles A, B, and C)
