Visualize impact and influence with our stakeholder map tool
Identify and prioritize your project stakeholders
Focus your team’s time on the stakeholders with the most interest and influence on your project. Using our stakeholder mapping tool, you can easily visualize who will impact, and who is impacted, by your project to help your team communicate with the appropriate people. Demonstrate which stakeholders you need to manage closely versus the stakeholders who require periodic updates. With a clear map of influence, your team can stay aligned on communication strategies throughout your project.
Start with a template and customize
Simplify the process of stakeholder mapping by customizing a stakeholder map template or building one from scratch. Our stakeholder map tool comes complete with the tools you need to get your ideas on the board, like sticky notes, images, freehand drawing, and Magic Shape. With an infinite canvas and the ability to link to important outside sources, you can make your map the go-to source for direction on your project.
Collaborate in real time with anyone, anywhere
Stakeholder maps are most effective when your entire team has access to them. Lucidspark was built to support real-time collaboration across devices and operating systems, so your team can work together, even when you’re not. Share your board with collaborators via email, Slack, or published link, complete with customizable editing permissions. Add ideas and insights with easy-to-use comments, @mentions, and even in-product chat. Every update is visible in real time and color-coded by collaborator for increased visibility.
Connect our stakeholder mapping software with your favorite apps
Once you’ve finalized your work in our stakeholder map creator, integrate with your favorite apps for easy access, editing, and sharing. Export your stakeholder map to Google Drive, where your work will be automatically synced and stored. Insert your map directly into your team Slack channel or Lucidspark Zoom app to incorporate your visuals into any brainstorming session. Lucidspark is completely integrated with Lucidchart, so you can export your work back and forth depending where you are in the process.
