Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness3 Who are “stakeholders”? “... key individuals (or groups of individuals) who have an influence over either decision-making or implementation (or both) either directly or indirectly, overtly or covertly” [T Grundy, Strategic Change, 1997] This influence can assist, hinder or alter the course of... change
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness4 Who are the community stakeholders? Who owns, drives the PPOR process? Cultural groups Healthy Start coalitions Schools, colleges Parent groups Businesses Faith-based groups Health care providers, clinics Mental health care providers Local health departments Insurance companies Law enforcement Coroner, medical examiner Others… “Everyone holds a piece of the puzzle”
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness5 Utilize existing resources If a group of community stakeholders already exists, Healthy Start Coalition FIMR Community Action Team Title V stakeholders population workgroup it may be able to serve the function of the PPOR stakeholders group PPOR is designed to be integrated with existing efforts, not to compete with them!
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness6 PPOR Community Challenges Explaining value to stakeholders Overcoming community inertia -- ‘already know this’ Mistrust of (quantitative) data Seeing PPOR as more than ‘research’ Competing priorities Securing resources for unmet needs, interventions identified through PPOR

Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness8 Stakeholder Analysis
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness9 What is a stakeholder analysis? Designed to provide an organization with information to evaluate and understand stakeholders in terms of their relevance to a policy or specific activity Can produce a broad understanding or focused understanding Ideally, a systematic process rather than a singular tool
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness10 Why involve stakeholders? Provide valuable information Needs, resources, realistic objectives, practical considerations Recognize hidden factors that might not be obvious in the planning stage Identify points of opposition / prevent problems during implementation Encourage a sense of ownership / involvement Ensure that the project focus remains on the population it is meant to support / serve
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness11 Step 1: Identify the stakeholders Beneficiaries Supporters Opponents Resource providers Vulnerable groups Others
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness12 Step 2: Create a stakeholder profile Role Motivation for being in project Perceived expectations / goals Level of importance for project success Potential negative impact on project Level of influence over decision-making for the project Intention to participate in accordance with project design Intended use of project / project results
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness13 Step 3: Determine a ladder of participation
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness14 Step 4: Establish participation categories & methods Establish participation categories Link stakeholders, based on the stakeholder profile, with the categories on the ‘ladder of participation’ Identify practical strategies or methods for stakeholder involvement

Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness16 Tools for Assessing Community Readiness, Participation, Leadership & Sustainability
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness17 Assessing Readiness for Change Are the key players prepared for their roles? Is the case for change compelling? How will changes mesh with current culture and values? Are there sufficient resources and adequate systems to sustain change? What are the opportunity costs? From: C Aschenbrener,AAMC, July 2000
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness18 What do all of these tools / methods have in common? TALKING! Most important features Talking / communicating Having a respected leader Having a common vision Having a plan – how will you move from vision to action Ensuring that everyone has a “role” Ensuring that everyone feels appreciated Periodically assessing gains and satisfaction
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness19 Community Readiness Tent
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness20 Community Readiness Tent Provides a framework for starting the PPOR process Helps engage partners, reach consensus, identify assets, reveal gaps, develop strategies
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness21 Readiness Tent Process Review the 5 essential elements questions Assess the current status of each Reach consensus on a “score” for each readiness element Plot each score on the “tent” by marking the number on each corresponding axis Connect the 5 points between the axes to form the roof, then shade the tent Identify the tent pattern most like yours: what does this mean for PPOR readiness?
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness22 What’s the shape of your community’s tent?
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness23 Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness24 Wilder Collaboration Factors Inventory Developed by the Amherst H Wilder Foundation (Wilder Research Center) Consists of 20 factors that influence the success of collaborations Factors are grouped into 6 domains Environment Membership Characteristics Process and Structure Communication Purpose Resources
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness25 A Word about Inventory Scoring & Interpretation No normative standards for a definitive interpretation of the numerical scores Look at overall scores and score patterns within the statements that comprise the factor and the factors that comprise the domain Consider... What are the collaborative group’s strengths? Weaknesses? Do representatives from the team tend to rate the factors in the same way? If not, what are the implications? For low-rated factors, are there particular items that are especially problematic? How strong are the scores overall?
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness26 Partnership Self-Assessment Tool
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness27 Partnership Self-Assessment Tool Developed by the Center for the Advancement of Collaborative Strategies in Health Designed to help partnerships: Understand how collaboration works Understand what it means to create a successful collaborative process Assess how well the collaborative process is working Identify specific areas they can focus on to make the collaborative process work better
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness28 Self-Assessment Toolkit for Partnerships
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness29 Community Participation: A Self Assessment Toolkit for Partnerships Developed by the East Midlands Development Agency, Nottingham, UK engage.pdf engage.pdf Designed to enable more effective voluntary and community sector participation in partnerships
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness30 Self Assessment Toolkit Contents Getting community participation right Reasons for the partnership Benefits and barriers to community participation The ‘lifecycle’ of partnerships Evidence that things might be going wrong Self-assessment tools for all phases of partnerships Start up Planning Implementation Evaluation Renewal
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness31 Collaboration: Yield, Stop, Go!
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness32 Collaboration: Yield, Stop, Go! Developed by a Great Plains Public Health Leadership Institute team as a leadership resource Consists of 4 questions and the resources to help a collaborative... Does the group work together as a collaborative? Is there a common understanding of why the group is together? Is the collaborative going where the group members want it to go? Is the collaborative effective?
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness33 PARTNER
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness34 PARTNER (RAND Corporation) Program to Analyze, Record, and Track Networks to Enhance Relationships (hence, “PARTNER”) Type of data collected: Identification of collaboration partners Record of the frequency of interactions Elements of the strength and quality of the interactions Measures of trust and value within the collaboration Network scores to report and illustrate changes to collaboration activity over time Analysis possibilities: Visualizations to show who is connected to whom, including the strength of links and characteristics of the collaboration members Network scores representing the density, centralization, and trust of the collaborative are provided

What relevant models and tools can be used to frame and guide collaborative efforts?
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness40 Wrap-up & Evaluation of Community Collaboratives
Stakeholder Analysis & Community Readiness41 Evaluation of Collaborative Processes Collaborative work should be evaluated to better understand How is it functioning? How effective is the group work? Are we likely to achieve our desired results? How satisfied are members? Questions about capacities, operations, climate, context Factors influencing success Projected tasks/activities relative to stages of development Milestones and Critical Events (journey)
