Social Capital, Sustainable Development, and the Corporation
The Stakeholder 360 is a research and consulting service on the opinions of an organization’s stakeholders. It helps organisations of every kind navigate the socio-political risks and opportunities in their stakeholder environments.
Corporations and governments find it especially useful because it:
- provides a complete list of stakeholders that goes beyond any one organization’s knowledge,
- provides a complete list of stakeholder issues, concerns, or goals with various types of importance rankings,
- matches clusters of stakeholders with clusters of issues to show who cares about what,
- shows how much influence each stakeholder has in the stakeholder network,
- shows alliances and divisions among stakeholders,
- shows which issues are linked to each other in the minds of different clusters of stakeholders,
- can predict impending conflicts or alliances in the network,
- suggests a path towards the socio-political conditions that foster sustainable development.
Most of the barriers to sustainable development are socio-political, not technical. However, its takes some technical knowledge of socio-political matters to remove those barriers. The Stakeholder 360 provides that kind of knowledge by showing the pattern of social capital in the network and comparing it with templates that indicate different types of remedial interventions.
